ScreenSkills also manages the Television Skills Fund, which is able to invest in training for the freelance television workforce thanks to contributions from BBC, Channel 4 and Channel 5. With many productions in the running for honours - including Hollyoaks (winner of best soap and continuing drama award) - the three broadcasters were well-represented at the ceremony. 

We would like to congratulate all the nominees and winners who have worked with us to support training in the industry.
