Are you studying for or just starting a career in the Media and Entertainment industries?

SkillsMentors are professionals passionate about developing creativity, entrepreneurship and business skills in the Creative Industries and we want to share real-life and practical advice (not the fluffy stuff) to help you in your studies as a student or develop your own career as a professional.

Animation, TV, Digital, Games and Music are the initial key themes we cover in our business-focussed eBook and online Video study materials. But we don't stop there. We recognise the real value of building relationships early in a career: bringing backers, partners and collaborators into your personal network and maximising their expertise when you have their attention. That's why we're excited to be also developing a series of related live, online seminars that blend insightful expert Masterclasses with group discussion and advice.

Further information on our materials will appear here in advance of their release.
