Funding for trainers and educators
Creative Skillset manages a range of training funds contributed to by industry and public sources.
Organisations such as training providers, assessment centres and education institutions can apply to the funds to get support to develop or run courses and development activities addressing skill areas prioritised by our industry panels and Creative Skillset's research programme.
The funds broaden access to training and career development opportunities, support businesses and aim to make the workforce healthier and safer.
