Factual TV production is absolutely booming in the Yorkshire region – talented, locally-based producers are making high-profile hit shows like A New Life in the Sun, The Yorkshire Vet, 24 Hours in A&E, Helicopter ER, Firefighters, Summer on the Farm, Say Yes to the Dress and Catching A Killer, among many, many others.
Producers like True North, Daisybeck Studios and Candour Productions are always on the look-out for bright, new talent to join their teams, but they often feel entry-level applicants don’t know exactly what it takes to launch a career as a runner, researcher, production secretary or data wrangler.
This 4-month, part-time course (April to July 2023) will tackle this head-on. It will give successful applicants detailed training in all of the roles and responsibilities they’ll be asked to carry out in the first six months of their factual TV careers, within editorial, production management and post-production departments.
We are looking for a trainees who bring a diverse range of experiences to the group and we actively encourage applicants from groups who are currently underrepresented in the film and television industries. We offer bursaries for applicants who need financial assistance with covering the fee for their chosen course.
