Creative Skillset and the BBC Academy are putting on free courses for freelancers at MediaCityUK.

Get Your Next Job in TV Drama is a day-long session of panels, networking and training for beginner and entry-level freelancers. Events are taking place in Manchester and Birmingham.

“This is a great chance to learn more about building a solid career in TV drama, especially as more opportunities are opening up in these regions,” said Ruth Palmer partnership manager - TV, Creative Skillset.

“These training days are tailored to give practical advice and to address skills gaps that exist in what we know is a growth area for TV production.  They should be well attended so I would act quickly to make sure you get a place”.

The panels will look at how to build a career in drama as well as learning about CVs and interviews, with advice from those behind the camera.

To fit the criteria to attend, the freelancer needs to have 6 months experience in TV production of any genre; or one credit on a television production; or a good portfolio of online video content.
