Graduate job opportunities in the arts created with help from PM

Published: Tuesday, 09 March 2010   Category: All Graduate job news

Recent university leavers on the hunt for graduate jobs and courses may be interested to hear that prime minister Gordon Brown has helped to establish a £600,000 scheme that intends to aid arts graduates in their hunt for suitable employment.

Known as the Creative Bursaries Scheme, it has been designed to help at least 40 arts graduates from poorer backgrounds to be attached onto normally unpaid internships so they can get a foot in the door in the notoriously hard to get into arts sector.

These bursaries will be run in partnership with arts charity the Jerwood Foundation and will last twelve months from when they start in September 2010.

"This funding will help give some of our gifted young artists the extra support and valuable experience they need to get a foot in the door of our creative industries and help them on their way to realising their full potential," commented Mr Brown.

"It is a vital boost for some of our great future actors, artists and musicians who may otherwise have slipped through the net."
