The ScreenSkills High-end TV Skills Fund has unveiled 22 mid-level crew identified by industry recommendation as Leaders of Tomorrow.
Leaders of Tomorrow is part of the programme to support the need for skilled senior roles. They will form the second cohort of the initiative aimed at developing career pathways and increasing diversity among leadership roles within high-end TV.
The programme, now in its second year, will champion future industry talent by providing mentoring, masterclasses and paid on-the-job training over the next three years. Those selected were each put forward by industry professionals having been marked as ready to take the next step in their career development and will now have access to expertise and resources tailored to what they need to progress to future head of department roles.
Twenty places on the programme are being supported by the High-end TV Skills Fund with industry contributions from high-end TV productions, with the BBC funding an additional two places.
Kaye Elliott, Director of High-end Television, said: “I am really proud to welcome our second cohort onto our HETV Leaders of Tomorrow programme, which provides three years of bespoke support to individuals hand-picked by industry to move into leadership roles in the future across a host of grades. It is fantastic to be able to support a second amazing group of talented individuals based all across the UK to become the leaders of tomorrow in HETV.”
Helen Mattioli, BBC, said: “We’re delighted to once again work with ScreenSkills to support the Leaders of Tomorrow programme and the commitment to improving the skills and diversity of the HETV workforce. As an industry it’s hugely important that we’re able to provide the next generation of HETV talent with the guidance they need to effectively develop and become future leaders.”
