Outlander Training Programme

Outlander is a high-end TV drama based at Ward Park studios in Cumbernauld.

Outlander is a commission from Sony Pictures and Starz and represents a significant production spend and training opportunity for Scotland.

Since Outlander began filming in Scotland in 2014, Screen Scotland, Outlander and ScreenSkills have co-funded 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 ScreenSkills 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.
