The First Peoples Creative Industries Traineeships program seeks to launch the careers of young First Peoples by opening doors to exciting roles in the creative industries – spanning arts, culture, screen, design, music, digital games and more. Trainees will also complete Certificates III-IV in Business during this traineeship.
Creative Victoria is seeking host organisations and businesses from across the breadth of the creative industries who are based in Victoria and can offer a 12-month placement to a young First Peoples trainee, aged 18-24 years.
Traineeships are fully funded by the Victorian Government. Host organisations will be responsible for the day-to-day costs of hosting a trainee within their organisation.
The traineeships program is delivered by ArtsReady and is an initiative of the Victorian Government’s Tharamba Bugheen: Victorian Aboriginal Business Strategy and First Peoples Action Plan for the Creative Industries.
