About the TV Skills Fund

The Creative Skillset TV Skills Fund is the result of an agreement between UK broadcasters to invest in training for the freelance television workforce. The contributors are: BBCChannel 4 and Five.

Since it was set up in 2006, the TV Skills Fund (formerly the TV Freelancer Fund) has invested over £10 million in the industry through different funding programmes.

It funds training organisations to deliver courses and development activities that will benefit the television industry across the UK and respond to the needs of the industry in addressing skills gaps and shortages.
