We're also a Charity

We’re committed to helping people from all backgrounds gain access to the TV Industry and the cost of your ticket goes towards supporting our two Talent Schemes, The Network and Ones to Watch.

We provide fully-funded places at Edinburgh, bespoke sessions, training and workshops, as well as year-round events and mentoring. We have supported more than 4000 individuals in various stages of their career, aiming to ensure that the people working in television are as diverse as the audience watching it.
