Leadership and Management Essentials for TV Drama Production, Post and VFX

Course type

Short Course


0.5 days

This is a bespoke course owned by ScreenSkills High-End Television Skills Fund, for heads of department and managers in high-end TV production, post and VFX.

The course was designed by industry trainer Addie Orfila Training and is delivered by a team of experienced production executives and executive coaches.

The scale and volume of today's TV drama productions mean heads of department (HoDs)s are increasingly required to run larger teams and manage staff. Are they really getting the best from their teams, and addressing underperformance? Do they know how to deal with allegations of harassment or bullying? Or how to crew up effectively – and improve the diversity of productions while staying within the law.

The course can be delivered face-to-face nationwide or online via Zoom to your production, post and VFX HoDs in TV drama.

  • Face-to-face: the course will take up half a day
  • Online: the course we be held in two 2.5 hour blocks, preferably on consecutive days
