High-end TV Skills Fund backs leadership training

Free leadership and management training is available to productions paying into the High-end TV Skills Fund for their heads of department. A team of trainers has now been formed to deliver the programme, which was created by Addie Orfila Training and is administered by DV Talent.

The scale and volume of today's TV drama productions means that HoDs are increasingly required to run larger teams and manage staff. Our craft and tech working group has identified this and commissioned a bespoke course for high-end TV productions to introduce leadership and management essentials for their HoDs.

The half-day course runs nationwide and covers:

  • team management
  • crewing up
  • managing performance
  • dealing with bullying and harassment
  • personality styles
  • unconscious bias

Informative, accessible, bite-size and free, this course is a great starting point for anyone leading a department. The programme was developed by Addie Orfila Training and is being administered by DV Talent.
