ScreenSkills, in association with the Script Supervisors Association, is running a pilot scheme for Trainee Script Supervisors in high-end drama. The scheme supported by the ScreenSkills High-end TV Skills Fund with contributions from UK high-end TV productions, offers Trainee Script Supervisors paid placements to train alongside an experienced Script Supervisor. Productions who pay into the HETV Skills Fund can then benefit from a subsidy to support any trainees they take on via the scheme.
For Trainee Script Supervisors
The scheme offers Trainee Script Supervisors paid placements to train alongside an experienced Script Supervisor. The placements will run up to a maximum of 20 weeks and the scheme is nation-wide.
We are looking for talented individuals from across the UK who have less than 12 months of paid experience as a script supervisor. Along with a clear understanding of the role of the Script supervisor, you must be able to clearly demonstrate a passion and commitment to the craft of Script Supervising. Examples of commitment may include:
- completion of a Script Supervising course
- production set experience
- skills specific to the department
- suitable transferable skills
You must not be in full time education (college/university students must have graduated before applying to the programme), live in the UK and have evidence of the right to work in the UK.
We welcome applications from individuals who have attended ScreenSkills funded boot camps and events, such as Open Doors, as well as partner schemes such as the BFI Film Academy.
We seek to ensure inclusivity in the high-end TV drama workforce. We are committed to diversity and equality of opportunity in all aspects of its work.

This pilot runs in additional to any trainee quotas the production already has in place. For more information on how to access this pilot scheme, please contact The Script Supervisors Association
