LSC Staging


This Apprenticeship covers all the main design areas, from graphics to product design.

Design is a broad term, and designers can work in a range of industries including fashion, furniture, manufacturing and media. While each industry requires specific skills, all designers work to come up with a concept that both serves a purpose and looks good. It’s a challenging and creative role.

The nature of your Design Apprenticeship will depend on your employer but you could work in one of four major areas: graphic and multimedia design in the media industry; interior design as well as construction-related industries including kitchen and bathroom design; fashion and textile design in the clothing and fabric manufacturing industries; and product design in the manufacturing industries, from packaging to furniture design.

As an apprentice, you could work for a design firm or a non-design business that uses designers in part of its operations (for example, a textile manufacturer).

You’ll assist a designer or design team and build specialist skills. This Apprenticeship focuses on the more artistic design roles and doesn’t include job roles in engineering or technical design.
