Skills & Talent

We're here to support the development of screen talent and a skilled and diverse workforce in Scotland.

Growing Scotland's screen workforce

As film and TV production activity continues to grow in Scotland, we need to ensure Scotland’s screen workforce grows with it – not only the writers producers and directors, but also the wide and growing range of other jobs and skills in production, distribution, marketing, business and finance, exhibition, education, festivals and audience development.

Led by Skills Development Scotland, Screen Scotland is carrying out original research to identify the profile of the workforce, the industry’s current and projected skills needs, and current education and training provision. This will inform a new Screen Skills Strategy for Scotland, to co-ordinate and support provision and address key priorities.
