Find out about the new BBC Apprentice Hub – supporting creative talent and business in the West Midlands

The BBC Apprentice Hub is a new initiative, which will be opening for applications soon. The pilot scheme will be launching in the West Midlands, the region in the UK with the youngest population and a diverse talent pool. The BBC’s Apprentice Hub will grow skills in the creative sector by placing apprentices with local small and medium sized employers. It will provide a vocational training programme with a  formal qualification at the end, accredited by an awarding body, giving the successful candidates a flexible approach to learning and getting work experience.

Membership of The Union Club

Bookings may only be made by using the dedicated email in the RTS Members Area and all visits to the club must be pre-booked with bookings being made within seven days of the visit – phone bookings and walk-ins are not permitted.

The Union Club was set up in 1993 by ex-North Sea oil rigger Pete Cross and Chef Carolyn Dawson, and both are (for their sins) still at the helm of the Club today. Opening a private members club had been a long held dream for the duo, and they took the plunge after buying a dilapidated building at 50 Greek Street, Soho.
