Outlander is a commission from Sony Pictures and Starz and represents a significant production spend and training opportunity for Scotland.
Since it began filming in Scotland in 2014, Screen Scotland has co-funded (with Outlander and Creative Skillset) a traineeships programme across all departments - including camera, costume, design, assistant director, art department, effects and production – to approximately twenty trainees per series.
Calls for traineeships go out on Creative Scotland Opportunities website and Creative Skillset’s Trainee Finder, in advance of each series' production period. Successful applicants with relevant skills and commitment to working in TV drama craft and technical departments get a major opportunity to develop their skills and networks on an exceptional High End TV (HETV) production.
