Before the skills needs of the Creative Industries can be addressed, they must first be identified.
Creative Skillset operates a comprehensive, industry endorsed programme of research about the industries and the training provision available to them. We are the leading specialists in providing research for the Creative Industries.

You can also read about how we use the evidence we gather. Or, to get straight at the facts, take a look at our 'What do you want to find out?' section.
