Leeds Trinity University has officially launched a new course in production skills on Monday 1 November.
The course, which is part of the university's [re]boot programme, is delivered online and is targeted to adult learners who wish to gain new skills and qualifications to enter employment within the TV industry.
The course has been designed in partnership with local businesses and provides practical and logistical support to creative production for both factual and drama programmes.
Clare Thomas, Production Executive at True North and programme tutor, said: “I can honestly say I’ve never seen such a busy time in the TV industry as we’re experiencing right now with a surge in jobs being advertised, but not enough people to undertake them. Getting new, diverse people into the talent pool is more important than ever.”
Clemence Ludhuy, who completed the Production Skills course in November 2019, said: “The course provided a realistic view of the profession, incorporating technical and practical experiences that were appropriately pitched for those partaking. I thoroughly enjoyed the experiential learning aspect of the course and I have already recommended the course to others.”
Professor Malcolm Todd, Deputy Vice-Chancellor at Leeds Trinity University, said: “We are delighted to be supporting individuals with free training opportunities in partnership with [re]boot. Our courses in Production Skills and other key topics like Digital Coding have been developed in partnership with industry professionals to support the needs of local employers, address the digital skills gap in Leeds and ensure that individuals gain industry-relevant skills which support them in their careers.”
