Who it’s for

 Please see below for details on how to apply.

This  workshop is for experienced talent who may be struggling with sole trader vs limited status,  freelancers who are struggling to plan their finances, or those in the early stages of their career who want to put their best foot forward.

Due to funding restrictions from ScreenSkills we will be prioritising applications from people who clearly demonstrate that they currently are or have an ambition to work in High-end Television (scripted).

This course is best suited to those who have already started their career in television or film so is not suited to students.

If you are a ScreenSkills Trainee Finder trainee you are not eligible as this training is delivered as part of your training programme.
