New apprenticeship scheme launches

Birmingham-based apprenticeship provider Creative Alliance and jewellery consultant Simon Rainer have developed a new apprenticeship scheme offering jewellery skills and digital marketing programmes, launching this week.

Aimed at companies based in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter and the West Midlands region, Creative Alliance will unveil the new scheme that aims to keep creative young talent in Birmingham at a launch event at the Birmingham School of Jewellery on Wednesday, March 8.

Hosted by Noel Dunne, director at Creative Alliance, the breakfast meeting will highlight how the new initiative will benefit jewellery and creative businesses, and explain how new creative skills and new talent can be developed. 

Simon Rainer consultant explained: “From my previous work with industry, providers, local government and sector skills council, I have always been aware of the need to offer a wider jewellery and creatives apprenticeship offer and I am delighted that Creative Alliance share this vision adding their many years’ experience through delivering effective training solutions. I am also equally delighted that leading Jewellery Quarter organisations are supporting the launch event.”

Birmingham- based supplier Cookson Gold currently employ a digital marketing apprentice who will give a talk about his role within the company at the breakfast meeting on Wednesday. In addition to Creative Alliance’s own digital marketing assessors and trainers, they have identified a need for experienced industry practitioners to be focussed on jewellery skills apprenticeship frameworks. It is hoped that the event will stimulate sufficient demand for these to be added to the Creative Alliance portfolio.
