On Monday I was in London to take part in a meeting of the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations (ACEVO) Arts, Culture & Heritage Special Interest Group. Our guest speaker was Pauline Tambling, joint Chief Executive of Creative & Cultural Skills. Creative & Cultural Skills is the licensed Sector Skills Council for the UK’s creative and cultural industries, including craft, cultural heritage, design, literature, music, performing arts and visual arts. Pauline spoke about the challenge of introducing young people to the careers they haven’t heard of and showed us the Creative Choices website (http://www.creative-choices.co.uk/). She also talked about apprenticeships, providing vocational as well as academic routes into the sector. CCSkills also runs the Creative Blueprint website which provides research and analysis for the creative and cultural industries, see: http://creative-blueprint.co.uk/
