Returning to the industry after a career break can be daunting, whether it is reconnecting with people, networking, updating and refining skills or job-hunting. 

A mentor can give valuable insight and guidance. This six-month programme is designed to match mentees looking to return to the film industry with an industry mentor for one-to-to mentoring sessions.

The programme will provide advice and training on how to get the most out of mentoring, regular networking opportunities and workshops as well as support and encouragement from a cohort of fellow returners to help you develop the confidence, knowledge and skills needed for a career comeback. 

The mentoring programme will take place from April - October, 2023

This programme is funded by the Film Skills Fund and is part of the ScreenSkills Mentoring Network which is supported by the BFI, awarding National Lottery funds as part of its Future Film Skills strategy.
