Creative Skillset Cymru – Final evaluation of the Skills for the Digital Economy Programme (2015)

Arad has been commissioned by Creative Skillset Cymru to undertake a final evaluation of their Skills for the Digital Economy Programme: a £4.5 million programme of research, training and support for the Creative Industries delivered between 2011 and 2015. The programme is funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) via the Welsh Government with additional funding support from the Welsh language broadcaster S4C and the trade association for Welsh TV producers, Teledwyr Annibynnol Cymru (TAC). The aim of the evaluation is to provide a robust quantitative economic impact evaluation of the programme including an assessment of strategic added value for the creative industries sector in Wales as well as a comprehensive summative evaluation of the programme and its impact on participating employees, employers and wider strategic stakeholders.
