Children's TV Skills Council

Decisions on how the children's TV levy funds are spent are made by the Children’s TV Council, which is made up of industry leaders in the sector. These include broadcasters as well as key figures from production, who use their direct industry experience to determine the most effective use of funds as well as utilising up-to-date research on industry skills gaps. 

Animated children's TV sits under the remit of the Animation Skills Council.
