Creative & Cultural Skills to expand team

Creative & Cultural Skills, the sector skills council for advertising, craft, cultural heritage, design, music and the arts, has announced plans to expand its team.

The organisation says up to 16 new posts are being created to help it deliver a range of initiatives following consultation with industry.

Tom Bewick, chief executive at Creative & Cultural Skills, said: "We've recently engaged with over 4,000 employers, practitioners and freelancers across the UK and put together an ambitious and innovative skills plan for our sector. Now we're expanding our team to match words with action and deliver the skills our vibrant and growing industries are demanding."

The expansion coincides with an assessment by Creative & Cultural Skills of what is required to meet the new sector skills council remit set out recently by the Leitch Review of Skills.

Creative & Cultural Skills says more resources are being directed towards workforce improvement projects, including creative apprenticeships; the National Skills Academy; and the reform of qualifications and occupational standards for the sector.

"The extra capacity will also help Creative & Cultural Skills to engage more directly with employers and key partners across our industries and regions as we follow the lead of the advertising and design sectors and introduce a new account management model of engagement," added Bewick.
