We are delighted to announce the launch of the first Apprenticeships through the Rinova consortium.

35 new Apprentices began their work-based learning and employment earlier in the year, organised by consortium members WAC and Collage Arts and supported by Rinova – the first, we intend, of many more. We are partnering the Creative and Cultural Skills National Skills Academy and its founder college member North Hertfordshire College to offer Creative and Digital Media qualifications, placed in a variety of creative industries locations, to young people aged 16-24.

The Consortium has identified some 250 Apprenticeship opportunities, which Rinova and partners will be implementing across all age ranges during the course of 2011-2012.
