This initiative is for TV professionals living in Wales.

Do you work in TV drama or have the required skills but work in theatre, animation, games or other similar sector? 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. This initiative  will be tailored to the individual according to their needs, and each participant will need to undertake a placement or course lasting no longer than 10 weeks and will receive a training bursary  for the entire period.  It is expected that the Stepping Up participant has already found the production or the company or companies ready to mentor them during the scheme, though Sgil Cymru is occasionally able to help with this.  The bursary will be capped and will normally be paid after the training has happened, though due to cost of living pressures, this can be adapted with discussion.  PLEASE NOTE, this scheme is totally bespoke and therefore needs to be discussed fully before acceptance.
