Government announces further support for skills


In last week’s Budget, the government announced that it will continue to contribute to Creative Skillset’s Skills Investment Fund for another two years. From April this year, it will provide £4 million to co-invest with the sector, matching pound for pound support for training and development in film, high-end TV, visual effects, video games and animation. Since 2013 Creative Skillset has invested £13 million of public investment which has incentivised a further £18.5 million of industry investment. To read more, visit the Creative Skillset website.
