Survey to identify skills challenges for Scotland's Screen Sector

Skills Development Scotland and Creative Scotland are co-funding research into the skills challenges for Scotland’s Screen Sector that need to be overcome to support its growth across film and television. The findings will assist the industry in creating strategies to better develop the sector’s businesses and freelance crew.

Two surveys, aimed at Screen Companies (for those supplying screen services and employing or contracting other workers) and Freelancers, will identify the skills issues impacting on screen business growth across the full value chain – production companies, broadcasters, facilities, studios, cinemas and so on.

Please take some time to tell us the challenges you are facing. The findings will genuinely assist Screen Scotland and our partner agencies to better understand and support your needs.

All information provided will be held in confidence and no comments will be attributable to any individual in accordance with GDPR guidelines. If you have any enquiries regarding the survey, please email:

Responses to the surveys for Screen Companies and Freelancers are invited until Friday 5 October 2018.
