The map of needs and factors in work-based learning process in cultural and creative sector

More and more young Europeans choose work in the cultural and creative sector and have to face such problems as working on projects, not having permanent job contracts, being employed part-time. Additionally, these people must have – as a result of the specific features of the CCIs – a wide array of digital, traditional, general, and specialist skills. After over a year of work together our partnership is now developing a training package, which combines non formal (offline) workshops and online learning for VET Educators to foster their competences and skills on promotion of WBL in CCI. It is based on results of a needs analysis reported in each of the partner countries. These were then used to write a summary report, which brings together our findings and shows best practices in WBL in CCI.

How cultural and creative industries can power human development in the 21st Century

Cultural and creative industries, which include arts and crafts, advertising, design, entertainment, architecture, books, media and software, have become a vital force in accelerating human development. They empower people to take ownership of their own development and stimulate the innovation that can drive inclusive sustainable growth. If well-nurtured, the creative economy can be a source of structural economic transformation, socio-economic progress, job creation and innovation while contributing to social inclusion and sustainable human development. It is thus not by chance that the 2004 UNDP Human Development Report makes a case for respecting diversity and building more inclusive societies through policies that recognize cultural differences and multicultural perspectives.
