Notes “overall market failure” in which there is under investment in human capital, fewer training opportunities, insufficiently structured career progression and unfair access to jobs and opportunities within the creative industries sector structure. Makes recommendations based on five themes: 1. Continuing professional development and nurturing business leaders of the future 2. Inspiring the next generation of creative talent and equipping them with the right skills and information 3. Increasing and enriching pathways so that talent from all backgrounds can access the sector 4. Co-ordination to meet knowledge gaps and make robust data and intelligence available for all 5. Reducing the bureaucratic burden, joining up investment and clarifying roles.
