Creative Scotland Fair Work Review

Published: 08 Sep 2021

Creative Scotland Fair Work Review

Creative Scotland has commissioned Culture Radar to undertake a review of Fair Work, leadership, workforce and skills development across the arts, screen and creative industries in Scotland. The Review will take place between August 2021 and February 2022.

The Scottish Government's vision is for Scotland to be a leading Fair Work Nation by 2025. No matter where your income or funding is derived, Fair Work and workforce development are important for everyone across our varied sector, now more than ever.

This Review and its findings will help inform Creative Scotland's planning and research around Fair Work, including how it might better support the cultural and creative sectors to implement it. It will also provide a baseline for understanding Fair Work and workforce development needs for the sector as a whole which will be critical for everyone’s future planning.

Have your say

We are keen to gather contributions from artists, organisations and freelancers working across the sector. We are asking people to complete two forms – a Fair Work Survey and a Skills Mapping Form.

To help limit survey fatigue these forms should only take between 5 and 20 minutes to complete, and by taking part respondents can opt in to win £50 to spend with a Scotland-based artist or creative organisation of their choice.

  • The Fair Work survey asks about awareness of Fair Work and any measures organisations may be undertaking in this area, along with any support they might need to implement Fair Work. It includes response routes for both organisations and freelance practitioners to follow and will take 15-20 minutes to complete. It will be open until Friday 15 October. Access the Fair Work Survey on Surveymonkey
  • The Skills Mapping form asks about workforce, leadership or skills development training currently offered – either by an organisation for its employees, or by training providers (companies or freelancers) into the sector. It will take around 5 minutes to complete and will be open until Friday 15 October. Access the Skills Mapping Form on Surveymonkey
