Rinova has launched a new Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership - PC4A - to promote quality and effective apprenticeships in the Creative and Cultural Industries (CCIs).
P4CA brings togetheran experienced partnership comprising Rinova Ltd (UK); Arteria, Poland; Regional Development Agency Senek Pezinok (Slovakia); Cultural Industry Creative Cluster Pecs (Hungary); Materahub (Italy); and Press to Exit (North Macedonia).
New creative technology and working patterns make the CCIs attractive to young people. However, there are significant, persistent barriers. Entry routes are often through personal networks or unpaid internships which tend to exclude young people from diverse and disadvantaged backgrounds. The CCIs also comprise an exceptionally large proportion of small and micro-businesses (up to 95% in some countries). Such businesses lack capacity or resources to take on apprenticeships, whilst training institutions often do not understand the career opportunities offered by this new and dynamic sector. Can new solutions be found to these intractable challenges?
