ScreenSkills UK has a long-standing working relationship with BECTU, where we cooperate on events and training programmes, both to encourage a greater diversity of young talent into the screen industries and to retain and improve the skills base of existing talent and crew.
These collaborations have included BECTU representatives appearing as guests at Open Doors, where we offer insight and information to young people hoping to get into film and TV, as well as BECTU delivering practical hands-on training courses in areas such as production management. BECTU also sit on some of our key industry councils.
We believe BECTU shares with us a belief in the importance of proper quality training and that a skilled workforce is of fundamental importance to the success of the UK’s film, television, VFX, animation and games. Like us, it wants its members to be properly prepared for the challenges of working in our exciting, but constantly evolving, industries. We value our partnership with BECTU in this work.
