NFTS Scotland is working with BBC Studioworks and QTV on a new 12-month paid trainee programme for six aspiring craftspeople to become skilled crew working within the country’s TV industry.
The Scottish Broadcast Trainee Programme is being launched in partnership with funders Screen Scotland and Glasgow City Council.
It will offer the trainees the opportunity to gain hands on experience in high-end studio productions at BBC Studioworks’ new facilities in Kelvin Hall. They will also work on major live sporting events, including SPFL and Scottish Rugby, music and corporate operations at QTV’s Baillieston facilities as well as gaining real-time experience at BBC Scotland.
Trainees will be exposed to a wide range of technical roles and industry practices, said NFTS Scotland, including multi-camera studio production and outside broadcasting.
The year-long programme is due to run from August 2023.
“We are delighted to partner with BBC Studioworks and QTV to launch the innovative Scottish Broadcast Trainee Programme”, commented Alison Goring, head of NFTS Scotland.
“By combining the resources and expertise of BBC Studioworks, QTV and NFTS Scotland, we are creating a unique opportunity for trainees to develop their skills, gain hands-on experience and unlock their full potential. We are proud to work in collaboration with the programme’s funders Screen Scotland and Glasgow City Council to further bolster the growth and success of Scotland’s creative sector.”
