THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Bringing together officials and senior representatives from across the creative
Industries, this seminar will consider the priorities for ensuring the UK creative workforce remains globally competitive during and after the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union.
It takes place in the context of official statistics from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport highlighting an increase of 19.5 per cent in the total number of jobs in the creative industries since 2011.
It also follows the recent publication of the Creative Industries Council’s growth strategy, Create Together, which sets strategic goals for industry and government over the next five years including: a joined-up careers strategy to increase entrants in creative industries-related subjects studied in schools; to widen apprenticeships; to support access to the creative professions for diverse and geographically dispersed talent; as well as promote the use of Creative Skillset’s Hiive network across the industry to help progression and increase mentoring.
Sessions will focus on the potential impact of changes to access agreements within the EU single market on the UK’s creative workforce, with particular focus on the movement and retaining of skilled workers, and filling the public funding gaps for training schemes, higher education and SMEs.
