The Creative Industries are built on the skills of their workforce, and the most successful creative businesses know the importance of training to keep their competitive edge.
With Creative Connection, Creative Skillset offers employers and freelancers a way to make accessing training simpler, more effective and more affordable.
How does Creative Connection work?
Creative Connection is a new pilot that uses Creative Skillset’s established links with UK-wide training services to help businesses and freelancers access the best training available with less fuss and less cost.
Through Creative Connection, Creative Skillset will work with you to identify training needs and the available courses that best meet your requirements.
They will then do the legwork for you, negotiating deals with training providers on your behalf. Where several businesses and freelancers are interested in a particular training course, Creative Skillset may be able to negotiate group discounts and pass on the discounts directly.
Simply complete this short survey on your training and business needs to get started:
After you’ve submitted your form, Creative Skillset will be in touch to acknowledge receipt and ask for any more information they might need. They’ll then get to work, aiming to connect you to the right training and save you money.
How Creative Skillset can make a difference
Creative Skillset, as the UK Creative Industries’ Sector Skills Council, is uniquely placed to offer this free scheme as it has a comprehensive knowledge of the training courses available locally and nationally.
If staying ahead in the skills race matters to you, you should join the Creative Connection pilot. While the pilot has a particular focus on the north of England, businesses and freelancers from across the UK are welcome to get involved.
