Skills Minister announces multi-million pound drive to boost diversity in creative industries

Creative Access welcomes today’s Government funding announcement, which will allow us to recruit nearly 300 more interns with 150 media partners over the next two years. It’s wonderful news for all the young people and media partners we work with.

Our founder, Michael Foster, said:

“The Employer Ownership programme is putting employers in the driving seat of skills and workforce development to the great good of young people seeking employment and up-skilling in the creative industries. Creative Access has, with the catalyst of BIS government support, joined with media employers who will be able to train more young people from diverse backgrounds than ever before. The driving force is economic good sense as employers see the world change and move forward and seek the right balance of skills and cultural diversity in their workforce to match and meet these changes.”
