Put your questions to Skillset about training bursaries for freelancers

Skillset, the media industry skills council, is answering questions about its new multi-platform training bursary for broadcast journalists today, as part of an online Q&A session.

You can put your questions to Alice Dudley, TV fund manager at Skillset, via the Guardian’s career section forum.

The multi-platform bursaries offer a grant of up to £800 for freelancers with an interest in working in broadcasting to spend on a range of 38 pre-selected, foundation-level courses, including an introductory course on social media and shooting video for the web.

To be eligible for a bursary, candidates must demonstrate either professional experience in the UK TV industry or the wider creative media industries with a view to working solely in TV or in broadcasting as part of a multimedia role.

There are 500 places available as part of the scheme.
