ScreenSkills launches mentoring network for screen professionals
April 3, 2019
ScreenSkills has launched a pan-UK mentoring drive to support new and established professionals in the UK’s screen industries.
The ScreenSkills Mentoring Network, supported by the BFI awarding National Lottery funds as part of its Future Film Skills strategy, aims to match 3,000 mentoring pairs by 2022.
ScreenSkills say: We have brought together screen organisations who already offer mentoring to devise a standardised set of guidance and good practice to ensure maximum benefit to participants.
We will target intakes of mentees over the coming year, first focusing on people from BAME backgrounds, followed by those returning to work after a career break, areas of skills gaps and screen professionals from out of London. Mentors are welcome to volunteer through the ScreenSkills website at any time.
