The Department is providing funding to BAFTA of £18,870 in 2014-15 via Creative Skillset to support skills development in the sector.

BAFTA also receives £17.5K from the British Film Institute (BFI) for Film Academy work which is funded by the Department for Education.

Although there are no specific diversity targets attached to this funding, Creative Skillset and BAFTA are committed to improving diversity across the sector and have met their diversity guidelines which are in place for all their funding and initiatives.
