In June and September, as part of the ‘Mind Your Business’ strand, we're offering training in a range of finance, HR and business affairs related areas, giving you the tools you need to thrive in your chosen field in unscripted TV.

This is a two-day course, please only apply if you can attend both days.

Reboot your creative thinking: these idea generation techniques have been tried and tested on projects ranging from scripted to unscripted, specialist factual to entertainment, for the BBC, to Netflix and even Facebook. You will get a chance to trial simple creative techniques to kick start new ideas and to develop them.

Who it's for

Anyone in unscripted TV who wants to improve their development skills.

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.

How to apply

This session will take place online via Zoom. Click ‘apply for ticket’ and follow the instructions to apply for your place: you must login or register before you are able to complete your application.

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.
