The Skills Development Fund supports production companies, game development studios and screen businesses to provide skills development through structured work-based learning.

This involves:

  • the development of a detailed Skills Development Plan that:
    • addresses the key skills needs of “below-the-line” (“BTL”) crew and gamemakers on a given production/s, games project or more broadly the national screen sector; and
    • supports diversity, equity and inclusion;


  • an appointed individual from within the company or an external consultant in the role of Skills Development Officer, to oversee the delivery and implementation of the Plan.

Funding of up to $80,000 is available to deliver an applicant’s Skills Development Plan. The fund is open to significant productions or projects across all formats and genres. Game development studios are eligible, as are film and TV production companies and screen businesses servicing the Australian screen sector. A co-contribution from the applicant is strongly recommended.
