Cockpit Arts aims to be an equitable employer. We recognise and encourage the potential of a diverse workforce and appoint on merit.

Creative Employment Programme

JulieCockpit Arts’ Creative Employment Programme was established in 2013 as an initiative to help studio holders take on their first employees and to increase opportunities for employment in the craft sector.

Please note: Creative Employment Programme funded apprenticeships have fixed criteria, including at the time of applying you must be aged 16 to 24 years old and a non-graduate. These eligibility criteria have been approved by the Department of Work and Pensions. You will find the full criteria listed in the application form.
