Support for production companies and individuals
The vision of the High-End TV Levy Fund is focused on the long-term development of a world-class, skilled UK workforce for the TV drama industry.
We deliver a wide range of skills support for crew and talent from new entrants to those more advanced in their careers across the UK. Our industry-led working groups and the HETV Council set clear annual priorities for the Levy Fund, identifying effective skills pathways to find, propel and develop high-end TV drama talent and crew.
The key expectations of the activities of the Fund are:
- UK wide engagement
- Diverse and inclusive
- Agile and close to the industry
- A dynamic profile
- Creating scale through working partnerships
- Accountable to the levy fund to ensure value for money and effective outcomes
- Focused in long term skills development
How can we help you?
