We have recently launch our Continuing Professional Development Programme, Skill Up. It is designed to help enhance and develop the skills of people already working in the industry. It will help ensure that regional production companies have the skilled staff they need to grow and succeed in a highly competitive environment, in turn bringing benefit to the whole screen sector in Yorkshire. Find out more and how to apply here.
Screen Yorkshire has joined forces with ScreenSkills and the National Film and Television School to form the Centre of Screen Excellence: Yorkshire, which aims to build a greater skilled craft workforce outside London and the South East. CoSE:Y launched in Leeds on February 28th 2020, at an industry event with the first students to be recruited for our new Craft Courses for film & TV.
We have also launched the ground- breaking Connected Campus, a network of University partners working to deliver added value to students and direct links to trainee placements and internships. University partners, through Screen Yorkshire, come together to address the skills and talent needs of the growing regional screen sector; a strategic partnership that is unique and benefits students, institutions and the industry. Connected Campus is designed to support talent entering the industry, whether they are starting careers with regionally based production companies, on the set of incoming productions or with companies relocating to Yorkshire.
Beyond Brontës is our exciting new screen industries training programme with a focus on addressing under representation within the screen industries. It is designed to break down the perceived and actual barriers that can prevent young people (aged 18 – 24) from diverse backgrounds break into the screen industries. Working closely with local industry, Beyond Brontës offers targeted support, designed to reflect the growing opportunities for young people who wish to enter the screen industries in the region. The bespoke training package, tailored to the needs of the individual, includes internships, careers information, one to one support, training and mentoring.
Screen Yorkshire also designs its own industry-recognised training schemes, such as Skill Up and Boot Camp, which have proved pivotal to supporting individuals at the beginning of their careers in the film & TV industry.
