ABC Awards are delighted to announce the launch of a new qualification for Creative Industry Professionals.

ABC Awards has been working in partnership with Creative Skillset and industry employers  to develop the ABC Level 4 Award in Commercial Skills for the Creative Industry Professionals (QCF) qualification, in response to demand from sector employers and trade bodies. It is aimed at those working within the Fashion and Textile, Design, Media, Advertising and Retail Industries.

Paul Eeles, Chief Executive of ABC Awards said: "Employers are increasingly looking to use the CPD route to help their staff develop and learn on the job. We have designed this qualification for employees aged 18 and over, who need to upskill. We have been impressed by the significant interest so far from a wide variety of fashion brands as we feel it will be of great interest to UK retailers."

John West, Development Manager, Creative Skillset  said: "The qualification will be an important progression route from the Advanced Apprenticeship portfolio both developed and issued by Creative Skillset, alongside enhancing the CPD opportunities of Creative Industry Professionals who cannot access such important areas within full qualifications."

The qualification is also supported by the UK Fashion and Textile Association (UKFT).
