ScreenSkills is the industry-led skills body for the UK's screen-based creative industries - animation, film, games, television including children's and high-end, VFX and immersive technology. ScreenSkills work across the whole of the country to build an inclusive workforce with the skills needed for continued success, now and in the future.

Following the introduction of UK tax relief for high-end television production in 2013, ScreenSkills has managed the High-end TV Skills Fund. It was agreed that those utilising the tax credit would contribute to the skills fund, which invests in skills activity to develop freelancers and talent working at all levels in high-end TV. More than £18 million has been invested in skills and training since the fund was founded.
