Why choose a ScreenSkills-endorsed course?
The ScreenSkills quality-mark identifies courses that can prove they can connect with industry and which teach professional skills to make sure you graduate work-ready. For employers, ScreenSkills endorsement signposts work-ready graduates and apprentices from creative courses that have proven to understand and have links with the screen industry.
We offer privileged profiling to employers of graduates of endorsed courses on our online talent directory. Our marketing explains to employers the value of the ScreenSkills endorsement and the talent directory provides direct access to the most talented apprentices and graduates.
Graduates from endorsed courses have privileged access to Trainee Finder, a service that matches trainees with companies across the UK’s animation, film, games, high-end TV and VFX industries. Trainee Finder gives companies quick and easy access to an online directory of the UK’s top trainees and allows employers to claim back a percentage of the trainee’s training allowance and costs.
