Deadline Approaches For Creative Skillset's Series Producer Programme

News Image
The deadline for this year's Series Producer Programme by Creative Skillset is this coming Monday, 8 January 2018. The initiative builds on the initiative over the past two years which saw more than 70% of delegates achieve Series Producer credits.

The move from Producer to Series Producer is substantial and research has highlighted the shortage of Series Producers in the UK. Through this programme, Creative Skillset aims to help solve the skills shortage and discover the next generation of SPs.

The initiative is open to new or aspiring SPs who are experienced producers with a minimum of three years' experience at Producer/Director level in factual, features, specialist factual, factual entertainment and entertainment.

The Series Producer Programme will offer participants:
• Training delivered by industry experts (approx 12 – 14 days)
• Masterclasses with broadcasters
• Mentoring by commissioners
• Continuous one-to-one support and career advice
• 'Money-can't-buy' networking
• Access and reduced fees to key industry events and festivals.

The programme will develop delegates' skills in:
• Developing and producing innovative television
• Storytelling
• People skills, and increasing awareness of personal style and impact
• Engaging with new audiences, new technologies and new platforms
• Promoting diversity in programme making, building diverse teams and unconscious bias
• Setting a vision and leading creative teams with confidence to deliver that vision
• Maximising social media and digital to promote your brand
• Crisis management
• Budgeting and scheduling
• Resilience and high performance.

The programme will also build delegates' networks, particularly at channel level.

The deadline for applications is 12pm on Monday, 8 January 2018. The programme will commence in March 2018.

Applications are encouraged from under-represented groups particularly those from BAME (Black, Asian or minority Ethnic) backgrounds or those with a disability and from delegates across the UK.

The Series Producer Programme is supported by the industry and broadcasters, and is funded by the BBC, Channel 4 and Channel 5 through the Creative Skillset TV Skills Fund.
