  • business growth and competitiveness
  • industries to maintain their competitive edge and share best practice
  • sectors to attract and retain talented people to build on success.
What we do
  • Support and develop new and existing talent for our industry
  • Provide careers advice through our careers service and on this website
  • Carry out research to find out about the training and skills needs of our industries
  • Encourage and raise investment to subsidise training for individuals and organisations
  • Recognise and certify the skills of people working in our industry
  • Advise on UK-wide education and training policy
  • Encourage and support equality of opportunity

What we don’t do

We don't provide training - but we do fund training through our Approved training partners and a network of public and private training providers

We don't provide funds for individuals - we run occasional bursary schemes for individuals, but only for training purposes and not to fund projects or productions

We don't provide industry work experience placements - but we do provide information on this website about how to get work experience
