Transforming the National College Creative Industries

Transforming the National College Creative Industries

We have just completed a formal consultation on a proposal to transform the National College Creative Industries through the creation of a new partnership with Access to Music (now operating as Access Creative College) and South Essex College.

The creative industries are the fastest growing part of the UK economy. In 2017, the sector contributed £101.5bn to the economy, an increase of 53.1% since 2010. There are more than 2 million jobs in the creative industries and more than 284,000 businesses in the sector.

UK labour market projections show that the rate of growth for both creative and STEM occupations will be more than double the average job growth across the whole UK economy between now and 2024.

Created by employers, the National College Creative Industries (NCCI) is excited to be leading a move from a single, small college base to an innovative partnership of a large regional further education college (South Essex College) and a national provider of specialist creative industries training (Access Creative College). We are moving to an alternative, tried-and-tested National College model which will create the opportunity for the National College to grow and extend its reach, and to develop its capacity to truly deliver the skills required by the sector on a national basis.
