Professional Development Fund - Screen Scotland

The development of Scotland’s screen workforce is essential to meet the industry’s growth, and to increase its diversity. The Professional Development Fund aims to contribute to this by providing support for individuals working in film and television to access training, mentoring and other professional development activity, nationally and internationally.

Applications are welcome from individuals who live in Scotland and work within the Scottish film and TV sector. The fund is aimed primarily at freelancers. However, applications from individuals working in small and growing screen businesses may be considered if a strong case for public funding is made, and there is a cash contribution from your employer to the budget. Please note that this fund cannot support new entrants to the industry. You can apply to this fund for any amount between £250 and £5,000 (not including personal access costs).
