The TP. Mentoring Network is a modular programme for people coming into, or moving up a grade in, physical production departments. It provides a range of information, workshops and one to one sessions to ensure mentees are industry-ready and armed with the right contacts and knowledge to progress their career in Feature Film and HETV.
One element of this scheme is time spent with an established industry mentor, who provides insights and advice on how to work effectively in their chosen department. Our mentors have established practitioners working at a supervisory level on feature films and high-end tv dramas. Recent productions they have worked on include No Time to Die, Star Wars, Mission Impossible – Fallout, Cruella, Cinderella, Fantastic Beasts 3, The Batman and Enola Holmes 2.
We work with up to 10 individuals in each round, for a period of 3 months.
Bursaries for travel/accommodation, fees and child/dependent may be available thanks to the Film Skills Fund managed by Screen Skills. Please ask us about this if you think you may be eligible and would like to apply.
This is a successful scheme – we have 140 Mentees on the Network, 85% of whom are now working in the department of their choice on feature and tv drama productions all over the UK.
