Funding is available to upskill experienced professionals, with the aim that at the end of the training the individual will be already in or able to apply for a job at the next grade up.

Children’s TV Skills Fund contributors can apply for up to £10,000 per production. Productions looking to step-up someone in a production management role can apply for up to £12,500 (extra funding provided by High-End TV Skills Fund)

We invite companies to propose an ambitious training project in areas needed by the UK’s children’s live-action sector to ensure growth. The skills and roles identified below are not exhaustive and we also welcome applications in which companies make a convincing evidence-based case for new skills needs. In-demand roles include:

  • Production management roles
  • 1st and 2nd assistant directors
  • Data wrangler
  • Director of photography
  • Director
  • Editor (especially ob-docs)
  • Script supervisor
  • Gaffer

Priority skills are:

  • Content creation for digital/multiplatform
  • Self-shooting for online creation – especially short form
  • Management and leadership

Activities supported may include but are not limited to:

  • On-the-job ‘stepping up’ programmes, may include shadowing and mentoring 
  • Intensive training programmes 
  • Professional skills development of employees and freelancers 
  • We encourage companies to consider a portfolio of training activity which will combine to deliver a substantial leap forward in skills for their company, whether this is a ‘stepping up’ programme to progressively build your company’s skills in in-demand roles or a multi-strand training project to equip your company in the priority skills needed for your next productions.
