Course Description:

Participants receive a bespoke package of training and support to help them to prepare for a career that is suited to their personal interests and strengths. Running across five months, the course is tailored to the needs of the individual, with modules including industry masterclasses, CV and interview workshops, mentorships, and one-to-one support. Internships and work experience placements are also arranged wherever feasible.

Screen Yorkshire is now inviting applications from young people (aged 18 - 30) from West Yorkshire from the following groups that are currently under-represented in film & TV:  individuals of Black, Asian or other minority ethnic backgrounds, individuals who have disability status or identify as LGBTQ+, and those who may have been prevented from accessing training and work experience due to socio-economic challenges.

Young people who are interested in applying should be able to demonstrate a passion and commitment for working in the film and TV industry, but they don’t need any work experience or particular qualifications to apply. The course is open to individuals aged 18 to 30 from West Yorkshire - which includes Bradford, Leeds, Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield. It is free to participate in and the course structure is designed as part-time to allow flexibility around other commitments.
