New Apprenticeships Provider ‘Access Industry’ Looks to Fill National Skills Gaps

Newly launched Access Industry, (formerly National College Creative Industries) have announced a series of events to address local concerns around skills gaps in the digital, events and creative industries.

Access Industry has already delivered successful apprenticeships to Disney, National Trust, and Royal Opera House and more, and are now reaching out to local employers to forge further partnerships.

Skills gaps are a national concern, with particular attention on IT and digital skills. In a Forbes survey of 500 British businesses, “93% reported a gap in IT skills in their workforce.. especially in AI, data analytics and cloud computing”.

To help address future skills gaps, Access Industry are calling all local employers to join them at a series of two day ‘Access Talent’ events, happening in four key cities over two weeks. The events are intended to pair passionate young people with innovative employers for apprenticeship opportunities.
