News Webinars explain Government Coronavirus support

Key contacts

If you have questions on the Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme and the Self-Employed Income Support Scheme, Ceri Stoner and Seth Roe have put together two webinars in conjunction with ScreenSkills that may prove particularly useful. To access the webinars please click here.

The Fundamentals of Furloughing – Guidance on the UK’s Covid-19 Job Retention Scheme takes you through the ins and outs of the scheme for employers and employees. The session explains the policy rationale behind the scheme, how it operates, who is eligible and exactly what can be claimed.

The UK’s Self Employed Income Support Scheme explains how the scheme works and who is expected to benefit. Whilst the scheme will provide a lifeline for many, it’s design means that some freelancers will fall short of the criteria. Ceri and Seth explore all the details and what options are available for those who aren’t eligible.

The ScreenSkills programme is supported by the BFI awarding National Lottery funding as part of the Future Film Skills programme and by the ScreenSkills High-end TV Skills Fund with contributions from UK high-end TV productions.
