Creative & Cultural Skills: Ambassadors for Growth
Creative & Cultural Skills will work to address employers’ lack of knowledge about how to identify and address their own training needs and to provide tailored support for hard-to-reach employers, including SMEs and sole traders, by putting in place a network of ‘Ambassadors for Growth’. These will be sector experts embedded in industry, working with Creative & Cultural Skills and with training providers.
The Ambassadors will identify and address individual business skills needs and signpost new and existing products and services. This face-to-face practitioner model will increase employer ambition and engagement by providing tailored skills assessment and highlighting realistic solutions. The Ambassadors will undertake employer visits and coordinate workplace careers events for a total of 47,000 13-16 year olds in England.
