Apprentice Nation, supported by BT, has announced that Ghetts (pictured above), Young T and Bugsey, Ray BLK and IAMDDB will perform at their concert on April 22 to launch their spring programme.
The one-off live show will kick off the six-week webinar series, which features career advice for the modern world, from artists and music executives, industry leaders and real-life apprentices.
Apprentice Nation has been built as a gamified career training platform that taps into the power of music to engage and inspire 16-24 year olds, particularly those from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds, to discover career pathways and job opportunities through on-demand videos, mentor sessions, webinars and Q&A sessions.
Topics covered include wellbeing and mindfulness, diversity and inclusion, and personal branding, as well as core skills for life and myth-busting around career paths.
The free, accessible content, delivered by top UK artists alongside industry leaders and young people, gives participants the opportunity to earn credits whilst they learn and exchange them for exclusive rewards provided by partner BT, such as England Football Shirts, Beats by Dre headphones, and even the exclusive chance to hang out online with one of the artists from the live show.
The more content participants watch, the more credits they earn and the more rewards they can claim. Young people from all four nations have excelled through the programme; over 2,000 courses completed in 2020 and 75% of participants reported an increase in confidence for themselves and their future.
