“Our Traineeships are designed to promote and offer excellent opportunities to gain important skills, experience and the confidence needed to gain employment in the Entertainment sector.”
The company’s objectives are to advance the education of the public in all aspects of the Black and Afro–Caribbean image, through the promotion and celebration of its Identity, Culture and Lifestyle, through Dramatic Arts and the development of public appreciation of such art by the provision of Theatre, Film, Television and facilities for the presentation of public performances:

Ananse Arts Traineeships will help you in the following ways:

• The opportunity to build your CV and get valuable work experience with local and national employers, where you are able to learn about the business and the industry it operates in.
• Gives you the ability to immerse yourself in the rich history and culture of the African and Afro Caribbean community.
• You will learn how to work within the departments of Administration, Customer Service, Finance, Marketing and Social Media, Production Management and Logistics.
• Work preparation training will put you in a better position to compete for an apprenticeship or other employment.
• Employers are at the centre of the work experience, which ensures you are ‘work ready’, and have the confidence to take the first step to securing employment and kick starting your career.
• At the end of your work experience, you’ll get an interview with the company if a role is available or an exit interview, together with meaningful written feedback, to help you secure an apprenticeship or other employment.

Traineeships are ideal if you are motivated to get a job but lack the skills and experience that employers are looking for. If you have been unsuccessful when applying for an apprenticeship or other job due to a lack of skills and experience then you are likely to be a good candidate for a traineeship.
