Employers who want to use the apprenticeship to develop existing staff or to train new recruits, are invited to come along to this event at The Blue Room in BFI Southbank, London, to find out: why this training is so ground-breaking for the post-production sector, how to apply for funds, and how to enrol apprentices on the scheme.
The Apprenticeship is aimed at: Technical operators, Edit assistants, Media assistants, and Machine-room operators.
Working in: Post-production facility companies, Indie production company in-house post departments, Broadcasters, and Content delivery and international localisation companies.
For industry, by industry
Written by industry experts and employers to exactly fit industry needs, the apprenticeship is now available for employers to train their staff with rigorous and relevant training fully funded by government and industry. The apprenticeship is focused not just the “how” but also the “why” of Post-production practises, and comes as an accredited qualification which will be recognised as the gold standard by apprentices and employers.
The apprenticeship course content has been developed by a ”Trailblazer” group of industry employers led by Rowan Bray, MD of Clear Cut Pictures in conjunction with Neil Hatton, CEO of the UK Screen Alliance. Other companies involved in the development were: MPC, Fifty Fifty, West Digital, Molinare, Framestore, Technicolor, Company3, Encore, Motion Pictures Solutions, Platform Post, Run VT, Flix Facilities, and Pinewood Studios.
Thanks also go to NextGen Skills Academy for the flyer design and production of the launch event.
Delivery of the of-the-job training element of the apprenticeship will be delivered by London South Bank University and the apprentices will receive a qualification assessed by AIM Assessment.
The development process was funded by the ScreenSkills High-end TV Skills Fund from contributions from High-end TV producers.
