High End TV – The High-end TV Skills Fund – established in return for the tax credit for productions costing more than £1 million an hour – supports training programmes both for new entrants and for the continued professional development of crew and talent.

TV -The ScreenSkills Television Skills Fund is the result of an agreement between UK broadcasters to invest in training for the freelance television workforce. The BBC, Channel 4 and Channel 5 contribute.
Since it was set up in 2006, the fund has invested more than £10.4 million in the industry through a variety of funding initiatives. The fund supports the delivery of courses and development activity that will benefit those working in non-scripted genres of television across the UK, in response to skills gaps and shortages in those genres. The fund is managed by ScreenSkills in close partnership with the TV Skills Fund Council comprised of key funders and industry figures.
