Northern Ireland Screen Skills Fund
Date Posted: January 6, 2016
The Northern Ireland Screen Skills Fund is still accepting applications from those wanting to further their professional development.
The Skills Fund is a grant offered to individuals working in the Northern Ireland screen sector and is designed to support financially those participating in training or development courses.
A key principle of the fund is that attendance at a training course should lead to advancement of skills, expertise and general career development and this in turn should positively impact on the screen industry in Northern Ireland. Consideration will be given to the appropriateness of the proposed course in terms of developing the individual’s personal skills.
A bursary can be awarded to an individual who is a Northern Ireland resident and currently working within Northern Ireland’s independent film, television and digital sector. Funding may be awarded for up to 75% of the applicant’s total budget or £2,000 whichever is the lesser amount.
