Our team of Industry Advisors provide us with sector-specific expertise and input. They are an important part of our work, contributing guidance that helps to steer our programmes and activities.
England we have advisors in the following sectors:
- Cultural Heritage
- Live events (music and theatre)
* For craft we are managing a sector-wide Craft Industry Board brought together by the MP John Hayes to champion and grow the skills of craft in the widest sense.
We have cross-sector Advisory Groups in Scotland. Please contact the Scotland office for more information.
We have cross-sector Advisory Groups in Northern Ireland. Please contact the Northern Ireland office for more information.
We have cross-sector Advisory Groups in Wales. Please contact the Wales office for more information.
The role of an Industry Advisor
These pools of Advisors are asked to:
- feed into our programmes and activities
- promote our work
- help us extend our reach into their sector and beyond.
We ask for their advice on a range of matters, including:
- qualification reform
- industry trends
- development of our Skills Academy networks
- live briefs for students in our education partner institutions
- development of careers advice content for Creative Choices.
How Industry Advisors work
Advisors may be consulted individually or invited to participate in small 'task and finish' groups as appropriate.
They are also invited to meet in person at Industry Advisory Groups, which occur two or three times during the year, and attend our annual National Conference in March.
Ask an Expert
We are keen that Advisors also sign up to be on an 'Ask an Expert' panel.
This allows them to offer their expertise directly to the people who need it.
