ScreenSkills pairs with Adobe on training fund

Software giant extends Film and TV Fund to UK for first time 

ScreenSkills has teamed up with software company Adobe to provide a series of training opportunities for people from underrepresented backgrounds in the UK.  

The programmes will be funded through a $250,000 (£202,000) grant from the Adobe Film and TV Fund, which was launched in January. The fund aims to help address the inequity in funding career and training opportunities across the entertainment industry and the partnership marks the fund’s extension to the UK for the first time.  

The pot will allow ScreenSkills to create face-to-face opportunities, as well as digital engagement, for more than 350 people from communities that have traditionally found it challenging to either consider a career in the screen industries or to progress their careers.  

Programmes benefitting from the pot are: First Break (Unscripted TV Skills Fund), which is a social mobility programme; Dream Big (Children’s TV Skills Fund), which provides practical training and masterclasses for underrepresented groups; and Film Forward (Film Skills Fund), a pilot programme specifically for film professionals who have a declared disability.
