Developing and retaining talent

A regular criticism of some industry diversity programmes is that they have sourced and trained diverse talent but then failed to properly develop individuals beyond their initial roles. Proper training and inclusion will help your company avoid wasting resources, where you lose talented individuals to competitors or to the industry generally.

Organisations offering training and development programmes at various levels include:

CDN Commissioner Programme

Creative Skillset

National Film and Television School

London Film School 

Production Guild 

DV Talent 

Channel 4

Pact

Indie Training Fund

Mama Youth
