Screen Sector Skills Fund

This programme is now closed. Find out about our current support for film and screen projects.  

About the programme

In early 2015, the Scottish Government announced a new £1m Screen Skills Fund to supports programmes and initiatives, in partnership with industry and other public bodies, which directly addressed four priority areas across the screen sector, including development, production, exhibition, and distribution. The fund was administered by Creative Scotland and was open for applications from organisations and consortia in April-May 2015. Applicants were asked to submit proposals which addressed the following priorities for support:

  • Advanced career development, building entrepreneurship and leadership skills
  • Business development and management seminar and workshop programmes
  • Bespoke skills development, including traineeships and apprenticeships
  • Access routes into the industry focusing on employability, encouraging and increasing workforce diversity and emerging talent development programmes.

The Screen Sector Skills Fund ran during 2015-16, but as of April 2016 the programme is now closed. To read about the projects and organisations funded through this programme, click here.
