The ScreenSkills Rise Mentoring Programme is open for UK applications

The ScreenSkills Rise Mentoring Programme Rise mentoring is a free, six month programme, starting from September 2021. It will support UK-based women working in, or aspiring to work in the broadcast media technology sector.

Our mentees benefit from a range of support, including:

  • Being matched with an industry professional and benefiting from one-to-one mentoring contact.
  • Monthly mentees group meeting, facilitating peer-to-peer support.
  • Access to networking events and workshops.
  • Support and guidance from the Rise Programme Director.

Please note, that due to the Coronavirus outbreak, much of our activity has moved online to keep mentors and mentees connected and supported.

The aims of the ScreenSkills Rise Mentoring Programme

The ScreenSkills Rise Mentoring Programme offers women across the broadcast tech sector in the UK access to crucial support to help transform their careers. It does this by:

  • helping mentees to take control of their careers by identifying career goals – and developing strategies to achieve them;
  • giving mentees access to a mentor who can give an impartial ear, feedback and advice;
  • improving communication skills;
  • expanding networks and making new connections.

With thanks to our funders

This programme is supported by ScreenSkills as part of the BFI Future Film Skills programme using funds from the National Lottery. It is an additional UK cohort to our annual Rise Mentoring scheme.
