Meet the Agencies | Session 4: University of the Highlands and Islands and Skills Development Scotland

Register here.

Skills, training and education are vitally important for the Creative Industries, particularly as we look at how the skills needed to develop and sustain a successful business are really being tested in the current crisis. This invaluable session brings together the University of the Highlands and Islands, with a long track record of supporting Creative Industries - and who have just launched new LevelUp! initiative with XpoNorth to help students into the sector - and Skills Development Scotland who have responsibility for a wealth of skills programmes, careers advice and apprenticeships. Whether you are looking to get into the sector, or are a well-established creative business, this is a great opportunity to find out more about further education and the skills agenda in Scotland.

We are asking for as many questions as possible in advance to provide as much useful information as possible during this session. Questions should be submitted to ashleylawrie@xponorth.co.uk by Wednesday 14 October at 12pm.

Speakers: Katie Masheter, Curriculum Development and Employer Engagement - Creative Industries, University of the Highlands and Islands

Meet the Agencies | Session 1: Creative Scotland and VisitScotland

Free Webinar | Thursday 24 September | 1.30pm – 2.30pm

Register here.

Public sector agencies have a specific remit that drives their work and what they can do to help. Sometimes though, we may just need a bit of a clarification around the remit and if this is the right organisation to approach for help.

This is a great opportunity to hear first-hand from two key staff about the work done by two national organisations – Creative Scotland and VisitScotland – and just what they can do to support businesses in the Highlands and Islands. So, if you are working in creative industries or tourism, or have a business that relies on tourists please take the chance to join us for what will be an invaluable session.

We are asking for as many questions as possible in advance to provide as much useful information as possible during this session. Questions should be submitted to ashleylawrie@xponorth.co.uk by Wednesday 23 September at 12pm.

Speakers: Helena Ward, Creative Industries Manager, Creative Scotland and Chris Taylor, Regional Partnerships Director, VisitScotland

Chair: Dr Simon Cuthbert-Kerr, Head of Creative Industries, Screen and Media Unit, Scottish Government
