Creative Skillset to adopt the name ScreenSkills

In acknowledgement of the upcoming merger with Indie Training Fund and reflecting a renewed focus on screen, Creative Skillset will adopt the name ScreenSkills from October 2018.

As previously announced Creative Skillset is to merge with the Indie Training Fund, the not-for-profit membership training body, this autumn. In acknowledgement of this move and reflecting a renewed focus on screen, we will adopt the name ScreenSkills.

Seetha Kumar, Chief Executive of Creative Skillset, said: “The Creative Skillset name has a long and honourable heritage. But after a period of huge change and with a renewed focus on screen, it seems sensible to have a clear, new identity.

ScreenSkills does what it says on the tin. This is a no-fuss change to give us a name under which we can carry out the work that needs to be delivered in partnership with our colleagues in the industry.

Richard Johnston, Chief Executive of Endemol Shine UK and Chair of Creative Skillset, said: “Creative Skillset, soon to be ScreenSkills, exists to ensure that our screen industries have the world-class, highly-skilled workforce necessary for the sector to continue to thrive. The new identity will provide clarity to this mission. One which the whole industry can support.”
