The Creative First Standard

This standard was created to assist mainstream organisations to identify those practitioners within the Hidden Creative Economy who have made a commitment to become a part of the wider creative industry.

The standard will achieve the following objectives:
1) Assist HEC organisations to develop their people to their own identified targets and goals
2) Help HEC organisations to be clear about their goals and objectives, and what they need to do to achieve them
3) In cases where HEC organisations are seeking to access funding, sponsorship or investment, the standard will identify those who have the “TrIA” to be responsible recipients of such support.

The standard will be valid for 2 years before organisations have to be reassessed and accreditation will mean automatic qualification of Creative Inclusion Full membership.
