A college that helps train people with skill shortages in Purfleet has been celebrating the success of its recent open day.
The college runs courses in the creative industry and creative arts for students aged 16 to 18 and 19 plus at Level 3 and 4 and is a provider for Apprenticeships working in the industry in Community Arts and Cultural Heritage, Creative Venue Technician, Event Assistant, Live Events and Promotion, Technical Theatre, Sound Light and Stage, Ticketing, Customer Service and Business Administration.
Elaine Kelt, Director of Curriculum and Quality at the National College Creative Industries said: “A successful open evening held at National College Creative Industries with many potential learners attending and being offered places from the surrounding area and Kent.
“Parents and learners were impressed by the fantastic facilities and given a taster of what they will undertake as part of their course.”
“The National College for Creative Industries has a fantastic proactive employer network who are fully engaged in the development of new apprenticeships to meet industry skills gaps. Our employers provide a line of sight to work with placements and huge opportunities for our students to work and develop their careers in the creative industry.”
There are only 4 National Colleges in the UK. National College Creative and Cultural was approved and set up just over a year ago, to ensure national cohesion and accessibility to training for the skills shortages in the Creative Industries.
Our National College will aim to increase social mobility and engage industry experts directly with trainees, with bespoke fast tracks to great training, both at college and at work.
The college is housed within The Back Stage Centre in Purfleet and has industry standard facilities for professional training and commercial industry hire for TV, music, film, advertising and performance.
