The ScreenSkills scheme invites 75 more recruits for film and 40 more for television, from a variety of backgrounds, to apply for the scheme that offers paid work opportunities across the UK.
Previous film trainees have worked on Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Peterloo, Stan and Ollie, and Lady Macbeth.
The scheme offers candidates the chance to gain valuable training and get their foot in the door of TV employment, with 82% of Mama Youth Project alumni still working in the industry a year after the training.
With no industry experience necessary, Mama Youth Project encourages those from under-represented backgrounds to apply, having previously helped over 400 young people break into the competitive TV industry.

Massive youth brands such as Radio 1 and BBC Three will be in attendance; plus the BBC’s training arm - the Academy and locally made BBC One daytime drama Doctors and BBC WM. More names are being added to the line up every day.
