Northern Ireland Screen actively supports both businesses and individuals through training, skills development and funding programmes. 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.
Funding may be awarded for up to 75% of the applicant’s total budget or £2,000 whichever is the lesser amount.
The balance of funding can be matched in cash from the individual applicant or from another private source.
Who can apply?
Northern Ireland resident individuals who have been accepted onto a screen skills development or training course.
For an information and application form, contact Funding Executive Catherine McGrattan.
Applications should be received no later than 3 weeks before the start of your course. For example, if your course starts on 1st November then apply no later than 8th October.
