Careers advice from David Bath, Technical Apprentice at The Roses

David Bath, technical apprentice at The Roses Theatre in Tewkesbury and Ryan Donna, now Venue Assistant at Gloucester Guildhall, both talked candidly to attendees at the Open Doors event about why they chose an apprenticeship and what their experience has been like. 

The event was part of our ongoing Open Doors event series with Creative Skillset, Create Gloucestershire and Gloucester Guildhall to offer 16 to 24 year olds the opportunity to delve behind the scenes of a vibrant arts venue. Attendees learned about job roles, career pathways and skills needs from Guildhall staff and other creative organisations and heard first-hand from creative apprentices about the value of vocational learning. 

David outlined why taking up an apprenticeship was the right fit for him. Find out more in Graham Russ at Creative Skillset's blog here.
