Creative Skillset and the ITF announce


Creative Skillset, the skills body for the UK’s screen based creative media, and the Indie Training Fund (ITF), the membership body providing training to television production companies and freelancers, have announced they are to merge at the beginning of 2018.

‘The merging of these two already complementary organisations makes great sense,’ said Richard Johnston, Creative Skillset chair, ‘and will ultimately deliver a stronger and more strategic approach to meeting the training needs of the industry.’ ITF chair, Nick Catliff, commented: ‘The combined strengths of the two organisations will help to focus industry investment even more effectively on responding to changing skills needs.’
