New research to assess skills needs in the jewellery industry

First published on Mon, September 02, 2013.

Creative & Cultural Skills, working in partnership with Private 2 Public Ltd, have today launched new research which will map key skills needs in the jewellery industry.

The research, which is the first of its kind to examine this creative and economically dynamic industry as a whole, will draw on the views of employers and businesses to identify current and future skills needs, and will ask whether there are specific skills issues that need to be addressed.

With the support of industry bodies representing the jewellery, silversmithing and allied trades, Creative & Cultural Skills has commissioned an online survey and is actively seeking the views of employers and professionals within the jewellery industry.

The survey takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Participants can enter a Prize Draw for the chance to win £300 of gift or shopping vouchers of their choice.

The evidence gathered through this research will help shape training provision for the industry in the future.

The survey will remain open until September 30th, and findings will be published early next year. This new research coincides with the launch of the Jewellery Skills Academy, an initiative aimed at encouraging individuals and organisations within the jewellery industry to directly influence the training of the future workforce.

The Jewellery Skills Academy is part of the National Skills Academy for Creative & Cultural, and is led by Creative & Cultural Skills. To find out more about the Skills Academy please visit

The survey is now closed. Many thanks to those who participated.
