The Creative Skillset Film Skills Fund is the largest fund in the UK dedicated to supporting film-specific training. It supports training programmes and also individuals via bursaries – grants of money towards the costs of courses.
The Film Skills Fund is invested in training in priority skills that are identified by the film industry through our research and by the senior employers on the Film Skills Council.
If you are a training provider please follow this link where details of funded opportunities will be posted when open.
Scholarships and bursaries
