Ronnie Gurr, Apprenticeships Manager at Creative & Cultural Skills (ccskills.org.uk/) introduces the sector skills council's role in supporting apprenticeship opportunities within the creative industries. Ronnie's presentation at Taking On An Intern: How To Clone Yourself and Grown Your Craft Business, focussed on a businesses decision to grow their capacity and their responsibilities in taking on an apprentice to do this.
Taking On An Intern: How to Clone Yourself and Grow Your Craft Business was an event for professional craftspeople and makers wanting to explore where to start with taking on an intern or apprentice. It was the first in a short series of events on this topic. The event was delivered in partnership with Business Gateway Edinburgh, in Edinburgh in February 2015. Films of all presentations from the Taking On An Intern: How to Clone Yourself and Grow Your Craft Business can be found on our Resources webpage.
