With increasing automation and easy access to new tech, the future demand for creative and technical skills will be high and ever growing.
With increasing automation and easy access to new tech, the future demand for creative and technical skills will be high and ever growing. We need to tackle this challenge head on to ensure our world-leading industries maintain their competitive edge.
We aim to restore the centrality of creative and technical skills, advocating this case to government and delivering practical interventions to help young people, teachers, careers advisers, and parents better understand the range of creative jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities that are possible, and how to pursue them.
In 2018-2019, we will:
Together with ScreenSkills and Creative & Cultural Skills, help young people and their influencers to understand the range of opportunities open to them across the creative economy
Work with Student Ambassadors who will be representatives for the Federation at their universities, helping to spread the word about events and opportunities in the creative industries while making the most of the insight, research, events and networking benefits that the Federation can offer them.
Make the case to government on the value of creative jobs and advocate the importance of creative and technical skills, from playground to pension.
