UK's ScreenSkills and Pinewood Studios launch local skills transfer initiative

Skills to Film aims to tackle industry skills shortages.

ScreenSkills, the training body for the UK creative industries, is collaborating with Pinewood Studios to launch Skills to Film, an initiative to tackle skills shortages identified in the UK industry.

The programme will offer people living or working near Pinewood in Buckinghamshire, information on how to transfer their skills to roles in film production. It will focus on five production specialisms: art, locations, costume, construction and accounts.

Areas outside of the industry from which the initiative will look to attract candidates include carpentry, plastering, design, sewing and fitting, finance management, marshalling and logistics.
