About Creative Skillset
We are working to help our Creative Industries collectively own and invest in skills and talent and to ensure they have world-beating leaders, who are inspirational, innovative and visionary entrepreneurs. We use our research programme and evidence base to highlight the link between skills and growth and work to ensure SMEs and micro enterprises are supported and partnered to address their skills and growth ambitions.
We want the creative industries workforce, including the large freelance community, to be able to access and invest in high quality, affordable training and development and to ensure that learning and training is of the highest quality and aligned to industry needs. We signpost that quality training to individuals and employers.
We work to ensure there are clear pathways into our industries for diverse new talent, with a focus on careers, apprenticeships, internships and traineeships. We guide employers to recruit openly and fairly and from the widest talent pool to ensure our industries attract the brightest and the best.
