Welcome! Since its launch, Creative Skillset's Trainee Finder scheme has helped place trainees on both UK Feature Films and High-End TV Drama across the UK as part of their respective Film Trainee Finder and HETV Trainee Finder programmes.

Trainee Finder has helped place trainees on Feature Films including Wonder Woman, Jurassic World, God's Own Country, Breathe and Lady Macbeth, and on High-End TV Dramas such as Peaky Blinders, Poldark, Game of Thrones, Outlander, Dr Foster and No Offence.

Trainee Finder covers the below production grades:
- Art Department
- Camera
- Costume and Wardrobe
- Edit
- Floor Runner (suitable for aspiring Assistant Directors)
- Hair and Makeup
- Locations
- Production Office (suitable for aspiring Production Managers)

By becoming a part of either the Film or HETV Trainee Finder schemes, you will become part of an industry recognised group of trainees, receiving exclusive access to training placements on some of the most exciting Films or TV Dramas being shot in the UK. Whilst on production, you will get the opportunity to be supported by a supervisor within your department, learn and develop your craft through on the job training, and gain important contacts to help you find future work.

Alongside placements, all trainees are required to attend training which could include Health and Safety, Finance for Freelancers, Branding and Networking, Industry Masterclasses, Carbon Literacy and 1-1 support to improve their trainees employability.
