Music industry giant The Ivors Academy is launching a new two-year diploma in Creative Entrepreneurship for students aged 19 years and over.
Backed by the biggest players in the music industry, TheWRD is a further education course offering young people the chance of building a career in this highly competitive industry, with the first intake starting in September 2022.
Following GCSEs, the new pre-degree diploma will be delivered through a combination of an immersive learning platform for remote-learning alongside regular group sessions and mentorship days in local grassroots music venues across the UK.
Students learn online and in person at their own pace on this accredited, UCAS-recognised course, which takes up to two years to complete. The course is designed to give students the skills and knowledge to create new opportunities whether they stay in education, start a career in music – in front of or behind the mic – or in another industry.
Taught and mentored by top music artists, publishers, producers, composers, technicians, marketeers, business executives, lawyers, accountants, graphic designers, publicists and agents and powered by TheWRD’s talent development technology, students will have a unique opportunity to chart a more fulfilling career in the creative industries.
