Skills Passport

What is Skills Passport?

Skills Passport is your gateway to acquiring new skills for your career in high-end television.

Skills Passport

It is a simple online tool designed to help TV professionals navigate the broad, and often confusing, spectrum of short training courses available to them. This is not an accreditation scheme but we work with industry representatives to identify great short courses which equip learners with industry-standard skills and could benefit you and your career in the long run. 

Skills Passport can help you:

  • Identify the key skills required for different roles within the screen industries
  • Find short training courses which can help you acquire those skills 
  • Build an accessible, reputable training record for yourself and future employers

How does it work?

Browse the Skills Passport short-course database. You can filter by industry, department, job level and key skill. The ‘Skills for All’ page highlights short courses that are important for everyone across all sectors such as leadership, computer skills and unconscious bias.

When you find a course which addresses the skills you are interested in, follow the link to the training provider website to book your place.


Creative Skillset awards bursaries to professionals who are actively looking to upskill in high-end TV drama and short courses listed on Skills Passport are eligible for bursary funding. Check this link for more information.

Skills Passport badges

Share your email address with the training provider at the end of the course and you will be sent a 'Course Complete' badge from Skills Passport to save on your phone and attach to your Hiive online profile, allowing you to build up an accessible, reputable training record which you can show to potential employers.
