The course is taught by a highly-experienced line producer in Children’s TV and is aimed at ensuring that UK productions have access to a cohort of skilled and educated professionals who can bring increased value to the production chain.

This training is supported by the ScreenSkills Children’s TV Skills Fund with contributions from UK children’s TV productions.

The 6 x 3 hour online sessions run in the mornings from 09.30 – 12.30 on 23 and 24 February, 2 and 3 March and 9 and 10 March.
