MITA is the membership network for independent training providers in the moving image sector. It was established in 2007 by a group of nine independent training providers, and launched later the same year with support from Film London and the London Development Agency.

The independent training sector has been an influential presence providing high quality industry-standard training for many years. This ranges from high quality scriptwriter training to technical craft skills. The sector operates with a strong social inclusion remit and many of the individuals who benefit from this training are drawn from groups that are under represented in the workforce of the media industries or on screen.
