ScreenSkills

ScreenSkills is the industry-led skills body for the screen industries – film, television (including children's, unscripted and high-end), VFX (visual effects), animation and games.

We train the people who make the shows the whole world loves and are supporting continued growth and future innovation across the country by investing in the skilled and inclusive workforce who are critical to the UK screen industries' global success.

We provide insight, career development and other opportunities to help people get into the industry and progress within it.

Our work includes:

Identifying skills gaps – current and future – across the screen industries and the whole of the country to provide an evidence base for investment in skills and training
Providing careers information
Mapping and quality-marking professional pathways to improve entry-level diversity and work readiness
Supporting development at every stage of a professional career in screen including through mentoring and offering bursaries.
Our approach is:

Industry-informed and owned: shaped by business intelligence and industry demands
Efficient: direct industry input delivers skills and training to meet priority needs
Partnership-led: harnessing the expertise of trade bodies, agencies, guilds, broadcasters, indies and others including the Royal Television Society, BAFTA and the BFI
Inclusive and accessible: embedding diversity in the workforce we help build.
Our revenue includes:

Contributions paid by industry into the Film/High-end TV/Children's TV/Unscripted TV/Animation Skills Funds
National Lottery funds awarded by the BFI as part of the Future Film Skills strategy
Awards from partner organisations such as Arts Council England.
In a fragmented industry where many key workers are freelance, we provide targeted, efficient interventions to retain and build the skilled workforce which underpins the UK’s screen success. Partnership with other organisations such as Creative & Cultural Skills (CCS), who support the broader arts, reinforces key messaging on the importance of skills and training – built on a good, rounded education in schools – to the country’s thriving creative industries.
