Government will match-fund industry commitments to the tune of £16m ($27.5m).
The UK government is to match-fund creative industry investment in skills training to the tune of £16m ($27.5m) as part of a new strategy unveiled today by Business Secretary Vince Cable.
The strategy, designed to grow the Creative Industries and boost skills, will see the launch of a host of new training schemes including a specialist studio management diploma run by Pinewood Studios; a Manchester-based ITV soaps training programme for new trainees working on long-running shows Coronation Street and Emmerdale; and an Oxford-based publishing training programme.
The drive, an initiative between Government and the Creative Industries Council (Cic) - a collective of creative industries executives which is co-chaired by Facebook executive Nicola Mendelsohn, Cable and Dcms Secretary Sajid Javid - follows a successful bid by creative industry employers, led by Channel 4, and skills organisation Creative Skillset.
The collective identifies five priority areas to the future »
