Online training and masterclasses from 25 – 31 May

© ScreenSkills/ Erroll Jones

As the industry-body for the UK’s screen industries, ScreenSkills stands in solidarity with the workforce and is here to support you through these challenging times.

Training is currently only available online, but this is under constant review. Please check out our directory to see what is available now. We would be very grateful if you don’t apply for everything so that we can share the opportunities with as many people as possible. For some craft and tech training, please ensure you already have the right skillset to benefit.

Please also keep an eye on what we are doing to help the industry return to work on set and location safely in coming weeks and months.

Until then, the following free training sessions and masterclasses will run between 25 and 31 May:
