With apologies, the skills forecasting event with WFTV due to take place in Leeds on 2 April has been postponed. We are sorry to disappoint those who have already registered, but we will reschedule when we are able.
The presentation will provide an overview of the Skills Forecasting Service, an umbrella term used to define any research project funded through the BFI Future Film Skills Strategy. Drawing on different data sources, all produced by ScreenSkills between 2019 and 2020, we will investigate workforce composition, business activity, demographic characteristics, skills gaps and shortages and training practices in the screen industries. We will also explore likely trends that might affect the screen industry workforce over the next 10 years.
This is an open event being hosted in partnership with Women in Film & TV, the UK’s leading membership organisation for women working in creative media in the UK. Attendees from the screen education, including careers advisers, as well as industry and those who have participated in this research in any way are all welcome.
After the presentation, ScreenSkills and WFTV will be hosting a networking session for guests. This will be a great opportunity for local industry practitioners to make new connections with other industry organisations looking to fill the skills gap in Leeds and West Yorkshire.
