Open House Webinar to share the aims and approach to researching current training and development provisions related to mental health and wellbeing in film and television.
About this event…
The Film and TV Charity is commissioning research as part of our movement for change in the industry, working towards everyone behind the scenes having better mental health. We want to understand what training + ongoing learning and development is currently available to freelancers, specifically to support better mental health and wellbeing for those working in film and TV in the UK. We are particularly focusing on training which is available to freelancers, at all levels, as well as considering those who run or work for small independent companies.
If you’re a trainer or provide training or learning resources in this space, or if you are interested in working with us to carry out the research, we’d like to hear from you and invite you to join us at our open house webinars. We will discuss the research and aim to answer any questions that you might have about what we are working on, why, how and what’s next. While we aren’t able to consider proposals from training providers to conduct this research, in order to avoid potential conflicts of interest, we are very keen to engage with trainers to ensure the research is comprehensive and wide-ranging.
If you are not a training provider and are interested in working with us to carry out the research, please have a look at the detailed brief on our website for information on how to submit a proposal for consideration.
Training+: an industry-led approach to training and ongoing development
Mapping current training provisions: why, how and what next? With Q&A.
Networking: an opportunity to connect with other training providers/researchers informally. Managed via breakout rooms and open after the main event for as long as people want to stick around. Totally optional and up to you how long you stay.
About our movement for change
The Whole Picture Programme is our two year intervention programme, as part of a 10 year sustainable plan, which aims to tackle the TV and film industry’s mental health difficulties (identified by the charity’s ground-breaking research). The programme is funded and shaped by the industry, for the industry. The key strands of activity are interlinked and mutually reinforcing, designed to effectively tackle the core underlying causes of our industry’s mental health difficulties: capability, conditions and culture.
The benefits to the industry will be:
- A toolkit for mentally healthy productions
- Enhanced professional and peer support for freelancers
- Access to training guides and ongoing development
- Industry actions to improve behaviours
- Anti-bullying services and resources
