  • The Skills Shortage Panel Discussion

    The Skills Shortage Panel Discussion

     

    Government figures released in July 2014 show that the number of jobs in the Creative Economy has increased by over 8% in the last year.

     

    While the results are welcomed the Creative Digital Media (CDM), the sector has reached a crisis in accessing and securing young talent. The sector is keen to support the work-based training route and believe that on the job training programmes through apprenticeships could match their needs, alongside graduate recruitment.

     

    In reality, at the recruitment stage of the process, new entrants to the sector are often not prepared and lack the basic work ready skills to secure employment.

     

    This panel discussion will present the organisations who deliver the training and development of new talent to the sector, local employers who recruit apprentices and graduates and the public services that have funding to encourage recruitment.

    When: September 17, 2014 (8.30am - 11.00am)
