NI Screen Skills

29th January 2009

Northern Ireland Screen (NIS) is open for applications for its 30-week Screen Skills development programme, which begins in March 2009.

It’s a paid placement scheme (minimum wage), and participants will gain experience on NIS funded projects as well as within independent television production companies.

Participants will be mentored by former Northern Ireland Screen trainees who are now established freelance crew members working in the UK film and television sector. They will also be given an individual Training Needs Analysis and attend short courses run by Skillset accredited organisations.

The programme will provide training opportunities for 6 junior freelancers who have had at least one year’s experience at runner level.

Only legal resident of the UK can apply. The deadline for receipt of entries is Friday 20 February 2009, and application forms can be downloaded from the web site.
