BBC Cymru Wales is looking for the Welsh creative and media talent of the future from across Wales.
Only a week remains for candidates to apply to the new Apprenticeship in Creative and Digital Media for the opportunity of a work placement with BBC Cymru Wales, with applications due to close at midnight on Monday, October 17 2011.
The apprenticeship scheme, a partnership between Skillset Cymru, BBC Wales and the independent sector, will provide a broad introduction into working in the creative media industries. The hope is that up to 24 Apprentices will gain on-the-job, practical training and experience as well as classroom-based learning at either Coleg Llandrillo Cymru or Cardiff and Vale College, leading to a Level 3 Certificate in Creative and Digital Media – an industry recognised qualification. Twelve-month work placements will be available with BBC Cymru Wales and with independent companies.
The Apprentices will learn the creative and technical skills they need to build a media career in Wales, as well as a range of other core media industry skills – like communication, team working, creative thinking and health and safety. During their work placements, the Apprentices will also be taught specific skills in at least one of the following specialist areas: Post Production; Set Construction and Rigging; Camera & Lighting; Hair, Make-up and Prosthetics; Costume; Animation; Production; Interactive Media.
