Scotland National Advisory Board

The Creative Skillset Scotland National Advisory Board is responsible for guiding and supporting the work we do in Scotland.

The board ensures that Scotland's leading employers, trade unions, further and higher education and public agencies are integral to how we work.

Their input aids us in designing ways to develop the skills of the 37,000 people working in Scotland's creative industries.
