Following its launch in January 2018, the BPI’s BRITs Apprentice Scheme was back for a third round in 2021 to offer further exciting opportunities to young people looking to develop a career in the music industry.

The BRITs Apprentice Scheme gives up to 10 individuals from all backgrounds across the UK who love music and are passionate about working in the music industry an opportunity to start out with a 15-month paid placement with an independent label or music company.

The scheme, which is run for the BPI by recruitment and training specialists DiVA, at the same time provides mainly small and medium sized independent music companies with a highly cost-effective means to recruit and train the additional staffing resource they need.

The Scheme is open to anyone aged 18 and over, with typical openings suited to an apprentice role including positions in marketing, administration, digital media, business affairs, licensing and A&R.

Apprenticeships are an important way to help bring in new and diverse talent into the industry and are in line with the Government’s commitment to education, skills and training.

Details of future rounds of the BRITs Apprentice Scheme will be posted here when confirmed.
