Our professional development course is based on the techniques BAFTA-winning storyteller John Yorke developed to train new writing talent on the BBC Writers’ Academy scheme. Our alumni work on BAFTA, Oscar and Emmy award-winning shows.
You’ll work in a small group of dedicated screenwriters with an expert tutor. By the end, you’ll be able to look at any story and pinpoint why it’s not working, and how to fix it.
Our professional skills training has been independently accredited for integrity and quality. All learners receive certificates of completion detailing CPD learning hours.
