What is the Creative Skillset Tick?

The Creative Skillset Tick signposts the courses and Apprenticeships that have earned employer approval for providing the most industry-relevant education and training available.

Before the Tick

Students found it difficult to know which courses were right for them and their career aspirations.

Employers found it difficult to know which courses to recruit from and to engage with for internships / master-classes and live briefs etc..


The creative skillset tick

Signposting quality and industry relevance

  • Focusing on excellence and the industry relevance of courses, by:

  • Deploying industry practitioners to use industry designed criteria to judge whether a course:

  • Recruits with a focus on talent and aspiration to work in the creative industries

  • Deploys industry experienced and up to date teaching and technical staff

  • Has up to date industry standard equipment

  • Maintains close links with industry to design and deliver the course

  • Has graduate destinations that prove success in getting students jobs in the industry.

Creative Advance in Wales

  • Creative Provision is a project funded by the Welsh Government Sector Priorities Fund pilot aimed at inviting HE and FE providers who deliver creative and digital media/animation to submit an expression of interest to help them strengthen industry links for their courses. This could include the offer of industry mentors to review curriculum and delivery and/or continuing professional development for staff

  • Invitations will be sent out between now and the end of June to identify activity to be delivered later in the year

  • Creative media employers will be approached to contribute to the development work and to act as mentors.

Creative Skillset CPD short course approval

  • 2012 piloted an on-line application and approval service for industry training providers to gain the Creative Skillset kite-mark
