As a result of the on-going transformations in the Cultural and creative Industry (CCI), artists, creators and culture and creative workers constantly need to develop and update their skills. Increased investment in the modernization of the education and training for artists, authors, creators and culture industries’ workers will help the EU to achieve its strategic goals. This implies also a new definition of professions and qualifications that form part of the CCI sector.

Statement:   Insufficient investment from larger CCI into professional training often prevents workers from adapting their qualifications to technological changes, thus allowing them to keep their employment.

  • More information and EU-wide comparable data is needed to better understand the current process of transformation within the CCI, the impact this has on the employment and working conditions and what measures are needed to improve the situation.
  • More research and data is needed as regards professional skills and qualifications in the culture and creative sectors.

Access to life-long learning and continued professional development is vital for all culture and creative workers, including those who are self-employed. It is important to increase the employability and work opportunities of creative and culture sectors’ workers by providing possibilities for continuing professional development and training in the workplace and increase the recognition of qualifications for professionals moving to another EU country.
