Creative panel call for UK film folk
Creative Skillset’s influential online panel on the UK film industry is seeking more participants, after a pilot survey in February.
The pilot results revealed that film employers identified investment needs, training and future trends as their priorities. The issues that were most prevalent around training were funding and future training needs, those most prevalent around future trends were future business needs and technology, and investment opportunities and company development were the most predominant concerns around investment needs.
Following the success of the pilot, the first of three annual surveys will take place in the summer and Creative Skillset is calling for more employers and individuals within the workforce to join. The short online surveys contain no more than ten quick questions and contributors get priority access to the results.
Results from the panels will feed into Creative Skillset’s strategies for developing skills and talent to drive growth in the Creative Industries and the UK economy.
Film employers and professionals are urged to give their views and be part of the panels to input into issues such as skills gaps, training and how best to support the UK Creative Industries in remaining globally competitive.
Creative Skillset is also holding focus groups this week on VFX skills, taking place in London, Bristol and Cardiff.
