Channel 4 and NFTS launch free training programme

Channel 4 and the National Film and Television School (NFTS) have launched a 4-week online training programme for indies and the freelance community in the nations and regions.

The sessions begin on Monday 22nd June and registration is free. The programme includes masterclasses, workshops and talks delivered by both the NFTS and Channel 4 teams. Each week has a distinct focus:

Week 1: Development and Pitching
Week 2: Storytelling
Week 3: Leadership and Resilience
Week 4: Digital and Innovation

The full programme can be found here.

Channel 4 is particularly keen to encourage smaller indies and those from underrepresented groups to take advantage of the sessions on offer.


Register now

Registrations for weeks one and two are already open via the NFTS website. Many of the sessions are already full, but if you are interested in attending any of those sessions you can still complete the online form so that the organisers are aware of demand.

Registrations for weeks three and four will open soon but in the meantime the schedules for those weeks can be downloaded from the NFTS website.

If you have any queries, please contact C4NationsandRegions@Channel4.co.uk.
