We have created this e-learning series with and for industry to ensure that people who are progressing in their careers have access to a host of useful learning and tips to help them understand more about how TV drama and comedy (scripted content) is made and the roles and responsibilities within it.

There are 12 modules to complete and a quiz to test knowledge gained at the end.

This short video gives you a taster of what to expect.


We have also created a handy glossary of the key words and phrases that will help those who are new to the screen industries, or early in their career, understand their role better. We recommend that you bookmark the glossary on your mobile device for easy reference in the workplace.

Complete all the modules, then take the measuring mastery quiz to get your certificate. You can download your certificate from your profile dashboard.
