Skills Programme Designed to Create a more Inclusive Regional Film and TV Workforce
Screen Yorkshire launches a new recruitment drive for its pioneering skills programme Beyond Brontës today. The free, part-time, training initiative was established in 2019 to support young people from a diverse range of backgrounds and circumstances to overcome obstacles that may have prevented them from entering the screen industries.
The Beyond Brontës programme offers successful applicants with a passion for film and TV a bespoke training package to prepare for a wide range of industry job roles; from make-up and set design to accountancy, editing or research.
Beyond Brontës has won the support of the local film and TV industry, including Yorkshire Based TV Presenter Amar Latif, Meridian Line Films co-founder Nacressa Swan and BAFTA Award winning director Jordan Hogg.
