The aim of these funds is to help ensure that the UK creative industries have a workforce with the right level and range of skills. The funds broaden access to training opportunities and career development, support businesses and aim to make the workforce healthier and safer.

The funds seek to address skill shortages identified by Creative Skillset's research programme and continuous consultation with the industries.
