Beyond Brontës is Screen Yorkshire’s successful initiative, established in 2019 to address 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 establish careers in the creative industries.
Our first group of trainees were recruited in June 2019 for a 6 – 12 month bespoke training package, tailored to the needs of the individual. The training typically includes internships, careers information, one to one support, skills training and mentoring. Our first group of trainees comes from a wide range of backgrounds within Bradford, Leeds, York, Barnsley, Calderdale, Harrogate, Kirklees, Selby and Wakefield.
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 against the backdrop of a national drive to grow these industries outside of London.
