Are you interested in taking on an Apprentice and the benefits it can bring?

How to get involved

Apprenticeships suit employers with either 2 or 200 employees, and it doesn't matter what type of business you are - record label, publisher, management, PR, collecting society etc, the Music4Good apprenticeships can fit your needs.

How we deliver the apprenticeships

Music4Good is the interface between employers and the future of your workforce - bright, passionate young people from diverse backgrounds. We work with community music projects and youth provision across London providing accessible and aspirational career opportunities for an often disadvantaged demographic. Our initiative aims to train and provide a different generation of apprentices, challenging the stereotypes of recruitment, internships and work experience in the UK music industry.

The recruitment process

Music4Good manage the recruitment and matching process, making sure the right young people work at the right organization. Music4Good shortlist the most suitable candidates from hundreds of applications, matching the right candidates to the right employer. The employer will then interview a selection delegated and supported by Music4Good.

Types of roles

Our apprentices have worked in various junior roles, in areas such as marketing, licensing, A&R, digital, promotion, artist liaison, event assistance, international and the like.

These roles should have a job description, regular tasks and responsibilities and ideally a specific project to which goals and targets can be attributed.

Apprenticeship duration and hours

The standard length of an apprenticeship is 9-months.

Four days a week at the employer, one day with Music4Good for the course aspect.

The apprentices are expected to work the standard office hours of your business.


Music4Good has a bespoke course in Music Business accredited to A-Level standard and delivered by qualified tutors with active industry careers. This means that our course is completely up to date, in-tune with new technology and the ever-changing digital space, providing our apprentices with the most relevant tools and skill during their time on the apprenticeship.

Extra support

Music4Good also provides key pastoral support as well as excellent ongoing advisory support for all apprentices and the organizations housing them, advising on mentoring, assessing the apprentice's progress and designing effective exit strategies to ensure successful career progression.


To maximize project efficiency we aim to synchronize the launch of the apprenticeships across all partner companies to ensure all apprentices commence the bespoke music industry course delivered by Music4Good.

What does it cost?

We believe that apprentices are members of staff, not cheap labour, therefore we expect them to receive a basic wage of around £12,000 pro rata. Many of our applicants come from disadvantaged backgrounds, and if we are trying to break the cycle of nepotism and graduate-only recruitment, then this is essential.

In addition, Music4Good's training and project management costs are calculated per apprentice. These costs include course delivery, tutor and admin costs. Music4Good is part funded by the LSC and supported by CCSkills to deliver training in certain areas.

Music4Good is working hard to make every aspect of its delivery fully funded and passing those benefits onto the employer.
