Helping Londoners get jobs in film, television, animation, visual effects and games

London Higher, in partnership with Middlesex University, Capital City College Group and Film London, is running the Creative Skills Academy. It is part of the Mayor’s Academies Programme and focuses primarily on the screen sector, which employs more than 211,000 people and has a turnover of £40 billion per year.

The Creative Skills Academy particularly aims to connect people who have traditionally been under-represented in the sector with opportunities for employment and freelance work.  

As part of the Academy, London Higher and our members are delivering a range of free training courses for students and graduates considering a career in the screen sector. These courses have been developed together with leading employers and industry trainers, making them the ideal gateway into work.
