Film London has been awarded £2.2 million National Lottery funding from the British Film Institute (BFI) to deliver the Metro London Skills Cluster in partnership with the National Film and Television School (NFTS).
Global demand for screen content is at an all-time high, creating opportunities at every level. So it’s vital that we continue to develop our talented, diverse workforce here in London, to capitalise on the demand and fill thousands of new jobs being created. The studio space across London and the South East continues to expand in response to this production boom, but the high volume of production means that the skills shortage – which is impacting all areas of the screen sector – is even more acute. The Metro London Skills Cluster region has some of the biggest opportunities for growth and our thanks go to the BFI for awarding the funds to deliver this work. It is a pleasure to partner with NFTS and to provide an even wider level of access to opportunities across London and the South East.
The BFI has announced £9.6m of National Lottery funding over three years to support skills development and training across the UK. Find out more about the Metro London Skills Cluster here.
