The ScreenSkills Mentoring Programme seeks to support mentees from underrepresented groups and at different stages of their career, as well as tackling skills gaps as identified by BFI and ScreenSkills research. This project runs to March 2022.

Mentoring is a personal and professional development partnership in which someone shares their experience and knowledge with someone who wants to grow and progress: it’s a two-way confidential partnership of development, dialogue, learning and challenge. If you are interested in becoming a mentor yourself please click here. At this time, interactions should take the form of remote meetings, over video call, phone call or email.

The ScreenSkills Mentoring Programme runs across all sectors of the screen industry and across the UK. It is aimed at:

  • New entrants
  • Those who want to progress within or across the industry
  • Those who want to return after a break
  • Those who want to identify goals and drive a mentoring partnership

Do you want to…

  • Learn, develop and be your best?
  • Overcome career challenges and achieve your goals?
  • Focus on professional and career development?

Are you ready to take responsibility for your learning by creating goals and driving your mentoring partnership? Then we would like to hear from you! Understand what is involved by taking our ‘Mentoring for mentees’ online module.

Take the next step

The deadline for applications for the next intake of mentees is 28 August 2020. Mentees can expect to receive an update on the status of their application by October 2020 latest, though we will be in touch sooner should we be able to find a suitable match for you. Please note that, due to the high number of applicants, we may not be able to match all applicants right away.

Mentoring partnerships take place for six hours over six months. Once you are matched you will be offered guidance and support to ensure you are able to get the best from mentoring. We will also ask you to sign a mentoring agreement and we will share with you the code of conduct.

Keep coming back here and sign up to our newsletter or follow us on Twitter or Facebook for the most up to date information.
