We are leading the Skills of the Future work package and working with Creative Alliance and other partners to develop the strands of activity within this, which is focused on:

  • growing the talent base focused on driving future cross sector skills  – media, creative, innovation, production and coding skills

  • increasing diversity (targeting deprived and excluded) – NEETS & unemployed

  • developing employment ready programmes and pathways to transition those with talent and skills into jobs, further education, enterprise – across priority growth sectors

Skills of the Future programme aims to build on current clusters of activity, to increase the technical level of skills in this area and ensure that it is matched to future jobs and opportunities.

This breakfast meeting will bring together employers and other key organisations with the aims to:

  • share with and get your feedback on what is being planned as part of the Skills of the Future proposed programme

  • understand employers and key partners needs now and in the future
