STEPPING UP

The training initiative for TV drama professionals in Wales.

Do you work in TV drama or have the required skills? Are you looking to ‘Step Up’ in your career?

Our STEPPING UP programme is a rare opportunity for professionals already working in the industry to advance in their career, and also for those highly trained qualified specialists who want to move across to TV. The training scheme will be tailored to the individual according to their needs, and each participant will undertake a placement or course lasting no longer than 10 weeks or receive a training allowance for the entire period.

Whether you’re a Production Secretary wanting to step up to Production Coordinator, an AD wanting to move up a grade, or an electrician wanting to move into television production, we want to hear from you. Tell us what you need for your step up and why.
