Centre of Screen Excellence: Yorkshire Runs UK Craft Certificates for Second Year to Meet Growing Demand for Crew
An exciting initiative for individuals interested in a career in film & TV opens for applications in Yorkshire today. The National Film and Television School (NFTS) Leeds, Screen Yorkshire and ScreenSkills are recruiting for five part-time film & TV craft courses, offering training in areas identified as ‘in demand’ locally, as the region’s booming film & TV industry emerges from the impact of COVID.
The craft certificates, in grip, lighting, hair & make-up, costume and production assistant (scripted), have been designed to provide trainees with a clear pathway to working in the film & TV industry.
The five part-time training courses will be delivered by NFTS Leeds from March – July 2021 with the support of Screen Yorkshire and in partnership with local education providers: University Centre Leeds, Keighley College and BECTU Grips and Crane Technicians Branch. This will be the second year of recruitment in the Centre of Screen Excellence: Yorkshire, a ScreenSkills initiative supported by the BFI awarding National Lottery funds to support the building of capacity outside of London and the South East.
