Creative & Cultural Skills is the organisation behind the Building a Creative Nation campaign.

Creative & Cultural Skills is the licensed Sector Skills Council for the UK’s creative and cultural industries, including craft, cultural heritage, design, literature, music, performing arts and visual arts.

Founded in 2004, we were granted a new licence from Government to operate in January 2010. Our goal is to enable the creative and cultural industries to reach their economic potential through relevant skills and training. We work in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales and with international partners.

We deliver through the National Skills Academy for Creative & Cultural, a network of education and industry partners working together to improve the provision of skills and training for the creative and cultural industries.
