Help us develop the new apprenticeship standards for screen

ScreenSkills is asking for industry feedback on the drafts of the new apprenticeship standards, which cover a wide range of job roles from animation to post-production.

We are working with leading employers and professional bodies in England to identify the skills, knowledge and behaviours that are required to work in the screen industries. We need your feedback to make sure these are accurate and fit for purpose, before submitting to the Institute of Apprenticeships for approval.

We have now finished the draft version of the Media Production Coordinator standard. To ensure that the standard reflects what currently is considered best practice in the industry, we would encourage professionals to download the draft here and send any feedback to nicole.suter@screenskills.com by 17.00 on Tuesday 2 April 2019.

Please invite anyone else who might want to have a say to participate in the consultation.

If you choose to give feedback, please give us your thoughts on the duties that underpin the knowledge, skills and behaviours identified so far and add anything that you feel is missing.

The attached document contains three sections:

  • Overview of what the role of media production coordinator entails
  • Typical job titles for the role
  • Duties (nine core duties and one optional duty, which is tailored to the work environment of the apprentice)

If you are interested in joining the employer working groups to discuss the apprenticeship standards, or have queries regarding the development process, please contact us at apprenticeships@screenskills.

Upcoming Standards
We will be asking for further input from industry in upcoming months. The BBC are currently developing an AI Data Specialist Standard; please contact huw.davies1@bbc.co.uk if you have any questions about this.
