Call For People Working In The Creative Industries In Wales To Take Part In Workplace Survey

News Image
People working in the Creative Industries in Wales are being invited to give their opinions through the Creative Skillset Cymru Workforce Survey.

The survey, which focuses on TV, Radio, Film, Animation, VFX, Digital Media and Games, is due to close on Friday 21st November,

The results will help inform funding to develop skills and training programmes for those in the Creative Industries through initiatives such as the Skills Investment Funds (SIFs), which has already invested almost £700,000 in Wales to-date.

Employees and freelancers are being asked about their career development in the Creative Industries including entry routes, training needs and barriers to progression. The survey offers individuals a unique opportunity to shape future training and skills development both for themselves and their industry. Through sharing their personal experiences, creative professionals will help to ensure that the quality of career support available matches that of their own work.

Industry leaders are already onboard and strongly encouraging those working in the sector to take part. Rhodri Talfan Davies, Director of BBC Cymru Wales and Chair of the Creative Skillset Cymru National Advisory Board said: "Wales' Creative Industries are world-renowned, and we have an extremely talented workforce. However, our sector is facing major skills gaps, so it’s essential that we ask them what they need to further develop their skills so we can address those shortages and continue to develop our talented individuals and ensure continued growth of Wales’ Creative Industries."

The survey takes around 15 minutes to complete. Anyone completing the survey will be eligible to enter the prize draw to win one of three IPAD Minis.
