Making the Cut is a professional editing and production programme for disabled talent.

If you’re a beginner or have limited experience, then this course is an opportunity to boost your career through access to training, mentoring and work placement opportunities.

After an introductory day on working in the industry, trainees can choose between courses in editing (Introduction to Adobe Premiere Pro, Advanced Adobe Premiere Pro and Avid Editing) and production (Production Coordination for film & high-end TV).

The study will be on a part-time basis and delivered through workshops scheduled between October and November 2019. The course will provide practical, hands-on training, enabling participants to understand current workflow and working practices. On completion of the training programme, participants will be assessed for Open College Network modules in Premiere Pro editing or Production Management Levels 2 and 3. Four Corners is an accredited OCN centre.

Each trainee will be allocated an industry mentor for the duration of the programme. There will also be opportunities for paid work placements with a production company/post-production house for selected participants as well as support with job search/applications, CVs and interviews, and invitations to industry networking events for all.

  • Course dates: September 2019 to February 2020
  • Induction day: Thursday 3rd October
