Creative Skills Initiative: employer pack

Get employers on board with the Creative Skills Initiative.

We want to ensure that employers benefit from a skilled generation of talent and continue on a course of economic growth. However, we recognise this is only possible if we support young people to develop skills that the sector needs.

The Creative Skills Initiative is being offered to our education partners as a bespoke course or enrichment programme for existing courses, but we know this alone won’t help prepare young people for the industry. This is why our programme has a mandatory work experience element to help young people contextualise their formal learning.

In order to offer this, we need employers to help provide access to the workplace: for some young people this will be their first step towards a career in the sector, and in turn a way to staff our future workforce helping the creative and cultural industries thrive for years to come.
