ScreenSkills is piloting a pan-industry training passport in partnership with BBC Studios, ITV Studios and Sky.

The ScreenSkills Training passport will provide a record of standardised and industry-approved training that production staff and freelancers can take from one production to the next.

As part of developing the pilot, ScreenSkills also consulted with producers organisation Pact. The pilot will launch later this month and run for six months.

The ScreenSkills Training Passport will offer benefits for employers as well as production staff and freelancers.

For broadcasters, studios and production companies, the passport ensures that there is a high-quality standard of training built into productions from the start. This enables employers to hire future crew with confidence and move more quickly into production.

Production staff and freelancers will be able to complete all the necessary training via the ScreenSkills website, and they will receive a completion certificate to use when applying for production roles. To complete the training passport, freelancers will need to register for a ScreenSkills account.

“This will offer both production staff and freelancers, industry-approved and standardised training that can also support their ongoing training needs and help develop their careers further,” commented Laura Mansfield, CEO, ScreenSkills. “The passport will also enable our partners to streamline their own onboarding processes, making the process simpler and more efficient for employer and employee alike.”
