As part of the Your life at work strand, we're offering training aimed at sharing workplace best practice as well as how you and your teams can stay healthy, happy, and productive at work. 

One-to-one coaching for professionals working at all levels in TV and digital media production, including freelancers. SpotCoaching provides you with timely access to independent coaching support whenever you need it – whether you’re stepping into a new role, in the middle of an assignment or at a particularly critical time towards the end of a production.

If you need some career coaching, please apply for one of Wendy's invaluable hour-long one-to-one sessions.

Who it's for

Anyone working in unscripted TV who is seeking career coaching.

The majority of the USF online short course offering is for those at early career stage and above. As a result, we generally require applicants to have at least 3 credits (unless working in a traditionally uncredited role). If you strongly feel you would still benefit from the training, please email USF@screenskills.com so we can assess if an exception should be made.

We are committed to ensuring all our courses are accessible to everyone. This course is designed to be as interactive as possible. Please email the above address if you have any access requirements and we will be delighted to help, be that clarifying the form such interaction is likely to take or discussing reasonable adjustments.


Wendy Wilson is an executive coach and professional development specialist. Her company, The SpotCoaching Company, provides flexible professional development, change management and transition support to organisations and individuals across the creative sector, including TV and film production, communication and broadcasting, theatre, and arts.

Her 1:1 coaching sessions are designed to provide clients with a safe, independent and completely confidential environment where they can refresh perspectives on both their professional aspirations and the demands of their career. 

A 60-minute coaching conversation with Wendy will give individuals the tools to adapt to change, problem solve, manage difficult situations or people and progress their career. It can also help to support health and well-being during times of stress and tight deadlines.

Places on these free online courses are limited and applications are often highly competitive. To stand the best chance of securing a place, please be sure to consider the following:

  • When asked to list your three most recent credits, please include the programme title and your job role.
  • When asked what you hope to gain from the course, please be concise but ensure you cover the specific elements of the topic you would like to gain knowledge of and what gaps in your skillset you believe the course may address. A rewording of the course title or a general comment on career progression does not tell us much about how this course would benefit you.

If you are no longer able to attend, we ask you to please use the “decline ticket” function on the right hand side of the page so that we can release your place. Our sessions are often oversubscribed, so we’d like to give other freelancers the opportunity to fill available spots. Thank you for your consideration.

This session is supported by the ScreenSkills Unscripted TV Skills Fund which invests in training for the unscripted workforce thanks to contributions from broadcasters, SVoDs and production companies.

This course would normally cost participants to attend, but thanks to this support, we are able to offer it to you for free. If you fail to attend, we reserve the right to request reimbursement of costs, unless your place can be taken by someone else.
