Screenskills opens up HETV course in leadership
Screenskills’ next course on leadership and management essentials for high-end television freelancers takes place online on 7 December, with further sessions in January and February.
The course is for expert, experienced HoDs and managers in high-end TV production, post and VFX who are increasingly required to run larger teams and manage staff.
The course has been designed to help them to get the best from their teams and help them address underperformance or bad behaviour.
The scale and volume of today's TV drama productions mean that heads of department (HoDs)s are increasingly required to run larger teams and manage staff. Are they really getting the best from their teams, and addressing underperformance? Do they know how to deal with allegations of harassment or bullying? Or how to work inclusively - and improve the diversity of productions while staying within the law?
The bespoke course is owned by ScreenSkills High-end Television Skills Fund and was designed by industry trainer Addie Orfila. It is delivered by a team of experienced industry experts and/or executive coaches.
This session will take place online via Zoom. Click ‘apply for ticket’ and follow the instructions to apply for your place: you must login or register before you are able to complete your application.
This session is supported by the ScreenSkills High-end TV Skills Fund with contributions from UK high-end TV productions.
