The British Film Institute and The National Lottery are funding,  through Creative Skillset, 'skills and training needs of the film industry to deliver economic benefit and cultural return'.

Hosts are being sought for an archive trainee scheme to run in 2015 and which aims to deliver '20 well-trained new entrants to the archive sector'.
 
Further down the line will be projects to digitise '10,000 key archive titles'.
