Help shape the Standards for Animation and Physical Special Effects

Do you want to see better talent joining your industry? Would you like to help develop the definitive list of best practice skills and knowledge for those working in Animation and Physical Special Effects?

Thanks to consultation with industry professionals from across the industry, Creative Skillset has developed the draft National Occupational Standards for these two areas. They are now consulting on their content in order to determine whether they truly reflect industry best practice.

Do you agree with them? We want to know!

Your input really is valuable and will help to define the Occupational Standards which will be used to shape courses and qualifications, job descriptions and other talent management tools for individuals, companies, trainers and educators.

The online consultations will be running as follows:

Animation from now until 9am Wednesday 8 February 2017

Physical Special Effects from now until 9am Monday 20 February 2017.

You can comment on as little or as much as you want – reflecting your experience and current role.
