With so many creative courses and apprenticeships out there all over the UK, how can you possibly know which are the best?

Actually, it’s surprisingly simple.

Pick the Tick®.


The Creative Skillset Tick is a quality mark of quality indicating the courses and apprenticeships best suited to prepare you for a career in the Creative Industries.

For a course or apprenticeship to be awarded the Creative Skillset Tick, you can be sure that it has undergone a rigorous assessment process conducted by experts working in the Creative Industries. They only give the Tick to those courses and apprenticeships that have the strongest links with industry.

This ensures that the courses keep up with the rapid pace of creative change, and students benefit from using the latest technologies and working with industry throughout their studies.

Employment in the Creative Industries continues to grow at an annual rate of 2%. However, there is an oversupply of graduates who have received a general ‘creative’ education.

Employers don’t want to have to provide new employees with basic skills and knowledge that they should already have learnt, and they haven’t got time to sift through hundreds of mediocre applicants to find the one who can hit the ground running. They’ll be looking at a simple indicator of the best graduates.

So, Pick the Tick® to stand out from the crowd.
