ScreenSkills is offering to subsidise the cost of employing and training individuals into higher grades. This “Make a Move” funding is open for applications until March 31, 2019. After training, employees should be already in or able to apply for their job at the next grade up. Up to £15,000 is available for High-end TV productions to offer on-the-job training.
An example of potential ‘move ups’ could be a location assistant moving up to unit manager for instance. Or, a make-up artist to make-up supervisor, or production secretary to production coordinator. The scheme covers all departments on a production.
High-end TV Skills Fund-contributing productions can apply for up to £15,000 per production.
- Individuals can only participate after being put forward by their employer
- Employees on Make a Move are not trainees, but part of a scheme to encourage and promote professional development
- Those put forward for the scheme need to be a professional who is deemed ready to move up to their next career grade
- They can be a completely new person to the team and department. Or, they can be an individual that has already worked with the team on a previous production
How to apply
