National Skills Academy
The National Skills Academy for Creative & Cultural is our network of committed partners from industry and education who work together to improve the provision of skills and training for the creative and cultural industries.
We want to ensure that every young person across the UK has access to accurate information about working in the creative and cultural sector.
We provide support through online resources and special events, all designed by people who work in the industry.
We are committed to working with employers and industry representatives within the creative and cultural industries to set professional standards of practice.
Our standards and frameworks are used by employers and education providers.
We believe in fair access to the creative and cultural industries. Providing accessible routes in to the sector is increasingly important if we are to avoid losing a generation of creative talent.
Designed and specified by industry experts, The Backstage Centre will facilitate practical and extended training and rehearsals in a bespoke environment.
It is a large-scale space for hire for the music and theatre industry, with capacity to rehearse, install, develop and train.
Our Creative Blueprint programme has directly influenced action across the industry and is at the heart of everything we do.
We use our research to understand the skills needs and gaps in the creative and cultural industries, to target our efforts and support our partners in taking action.
