BFI & Skillset

The BFI runs programmes for about 30,000 learners of all ages at BFI Southbank, as well as providing resources in print and online to support film education across the UK. We are a national advocate for film in the education sector, working particularly in the last 5 years with the literacy curriculum at primary level. In www.screenonline.org.uk we have the definitive online guide to British film and television.

Skillset is the Sector Skills Council (SSC) for Creative Media which comprises TV, film, radio, interactive media, animation, computer games, facilities, photo imaging and publishing. Our aim is to support the improvements to the productivity of our industry to ensure that it remains globally competitive. We do this be influencing and leading; developing skills, training and education policy; and through opening up the industries to the UK’s pool of diverse talent.
