ScreenSkills is the industry-led skills body for the UK's screen industries. Education is an important part of our work, which includes:
• providing clear careers advice to young people interesting in a career in screen
• creating a stronger profile for Tick, our quality mark that is awarded to HE and FE courses that are considered most relevant for careers in screen according to the industry experts
• enabling talented creative industries to enter the film and TV industry via our Trainee Finder scheme
@Netflix and @WarnerBros are to partner with the screen industry body @UKScreenSkills on an innovative pilot programme to enable more people to join the film and TV industries through an #apprenticeship
Twenty people aspiring to work in film and television will be trained as broadcast production assistants and as production accountants in the programme which is being supported by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
A new campaign will launch this week to introduce people who may know little about the screen industries to the array of jobs available behind the camera – including many involving skills that can be transferred in from other sectors.
