Scottish Government unveils support for NFTS


In August, the Scottish Government announced funding of £475,000 to support plans for the NFTS to open a hub at BBC Scotland’s studios in Glasgow and Dumbarton Studios. The School has secured support from a range of industry partners including the BBC, STV, Channel 4 and the BFI. The School will specifically work to address gaps in existing provision in Scotland such as Production Accounting, Script Editing and Factual Development. Projected annual student numbers are expected to be in the region of 450 (100 full-time, 50 part-time and 250 on CPD courses). Diversity and inclusion are key priorities and there is a joint aspiration that a third of all places in the first two years will be fully funded scholarship places.

NFTS Scotland is expected to open in January 2018 with students enrolling from April 2018. To read more, click here.
