Abstract / Description of output

In this chapter we explore models for training and upskilling people in the creative industries in data, technology and entrepreneurial skills, situating this in the wider skills and training context. We will particularly look at the challenges of delivering training in the creative sector where innovation and problem solving are core skills, but capacity for continuous professional development is frequently limited by the nature of employment/freelancer working and existing data and business literacy.
