We have a range of support and funding available for production companies to help develop their workforces as well as for individuals to grow their careers in TV. These are delivered both in-house and also externally by industry-recognised training providers.
The TV Skills Fund supports the training programmes below. These aim to deliver value to the television industry across the UK by addressing the needs of the industry and responding to skills gaps and shortages.
The Rising Directors Scheme from Indie Training Fund gives emerging directors a chance to produce and direct their own documentary short, which will then be showcased at this year’s Sheffield Doc/Fest.
Creative Skillset and the BBC Academy run a special programme for those starting out in TV and wishing to pursue a career in Production Management.
Building on from the success of two previous programmes, which saw more than 70% of delegates getting Series Producer credits in the last 18 months, Creative Skillset is back to kickstart 20 more Series Producer careers.
