We believe that creative media should be open to all.  

High training costs, non-existent support networks, unpaid internships and precarious entry-level jobs prevent many people from working in the film and TV industry.  

We directly tackle these barriers. Our programmes offer specialist skills training, mentoring and paid placements, to support underrepresented people into successful careers. 

New training opportunities will be announced via our mailing list.
