The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) is hosting a careers event for those looking to break into the industry 20/02/2013
BAFTA TV Forum: Generation Next will begin on Friday 10 May, providing emerging young talent with links to the world of television.
The day-long event will feature masterclasses, panel discussions and networking with leading TV professionals. One expert will be Tim Hinks, president of Endemol, the makers of The Million Pound Drop Live, Big Brother, Ripper Street and Black Mirror.
BAFTA will also examine the range of jobs available in broadcasting, the skills required, and how job-seekers can showcase their talents to potential employers.
All those interested in TV roles are encouraged to attend - from new writers and directors to would-be researchers and assistant producers.
The chairwoman of BAFTA's learning and events committee, Anne Morrison, says, 'Generation Next is a day for anyone who has ever considered a career in TV, whether they are already on the first rung of the ladder or still exploring what options might be available.
'We aim to de-mystify the structure of the industry and also examine the reality of working in this challenging and exciting area.
'By hearing from, and speaking to professionals in a variety of roles, we hope that delegates leave with greater confidence and a wealth of new contacts.'
Tickets cost £30 (including lunch and drinks), and BAFTA are also offering 20 free day passes to students over 18 years of age from across the UK.
