Skills in Scotland’s screen sector were the focus of a recent Centre for Work-based Learning event in Edinburgh, organised as part of the Edinburgh International Film Festival in association with Skills Development Scotland and Screen Scotland.
It attracted more than 100 big hitters from the TV and film industry (as well as colleges, universities and other public agencies) looking to collectively tackle the shortage of trained staff and freelance workers able to support the growth of the industry.
SDS and Screen Scotland created a research briefing designed to inform the discussion on how the industry should rise to the challenges and opportunities offered by a sustainable, dynamic and diverse screen sector in Scotland. Contributions from the day are now being brought into the development of a new Screen Skills Strategy by the Screen Scotland Partnership.
