Education and Training

The Royal Television Society aims to support people working in the television industry at all stages. We host a range of events to provide a link between those that want to break in to TV, and those that are already there. We award 25 bursaries each year to help emerging talent study at university, and two prestigious Steve Hewlett Scholarships to applicants with a flair for current affairs journalism. Whether it's an editorial or technical role you're after, on-screen or off, we're here to help.


Television is a competitive industry. It boasts some of the UK's most creative talent and thus can seem daunting to those starting out or wanting to progress. Here you will find our full collection of online resources. From Tea Break Tips shared by industry experts, to information on supportive schemes, these pages are designed to help you become the best in your field.
