Established in 2019, Beyond Brontës is our highly-successful scheme which aims to address under representation within the screen industries, by breaking down the perceived and actual barriers that can prevent young people from diverse backgrounds starting and establishing careers within the industry.
Successful applicants who have a passion for TV and film are offered a bespoke training package tailored to their interests, to prepare them for a wide range of industry jobs. This training involves industry masterclasses, CV and interview workshops, mentorships, one-to-one support, and detailed careers information. Also, where feasible and practical, this includes internships and work experience placements, and our trainees have enjoyed experiences on All Creatures Great and Small, The Syndicate, Saved and Remade, and Ackley Bridge, and with high-profile production companies such as True North, Wise Owl Films, ButtonDown Productions, and Meridian Line Films.
