This Apprenticeship Programme has been created to reflect the dynamic, flexible nature of freelance work that is the heartbeat of the industry.

CRIW is your unique opportunity to develop the skills and gain the experience for a career in this industry.
A successful pilot scheme for CRIW ran in 2020 and saw apprentices work on the set of hit Fox drama War of the Worlds, starring Daisy Edgar-Jones and Gabriel Byrne.
