Screen Skills Training Courses

ScreenSkills is the industry-led skills body for the screen industries. They work across the UK to ensure that film, television (including children’s and high-end drama), VFX (visual effects), animation and games have the skills and talent they need.

They provide insight, career development and other opportunities to help grow and sustain the skilled and inclusive workforce which is the foundation stone of the UK’s global screen success.

In the ScreenSkills directory you can find all the short courses commissioned, subsidised or quality-assured by ScreenSkills.

Screen Skills have launched a range of masterclasses, training and workshops supported by the TV Skills Fund, ScreenSkills ITF and the HETV Skills Fund. It is a free package of remote and interactive training, online talks and masterclasses with industry leaders to support freelancers in upskilling and staying in touch with industry during these difficult times (Covid-19).

The detailed programme will be released a week at a time to allow everyone a chance to benefit. Numbers will be kept modest in the first week of pilots but will be adjusted where possible after that to meet demand. They are politely asking freelancers not to over-book as we want to reach as many freelancers as possible.

All ScreenSkills events can be found in the directory here.

Mentoring for mentors and Mentoring for mentees are free to access and provide an introduction to the concept of mentoring for either the mentor or mentee.

This online training is supported by the BFI, awarding National Lottery funds as part of its Future Film Skills strategy.

The content was written by Jane Saunders, ScreenSkills’ mentoring manager. She is an expert in the field of mentoring, coaching and training, with many years’ experience running mentoring programmes and training mentors and mentees.
