We are looking for people who are enthusiastic, keen to work hard as part of a team and quick to learn. You should have a good general education, but no other specific educational requirements are needed for this course. Previous experience working in the film or television industry would be an advantage, or knowledge gained from an alternative production activity, for example, a University or College media course project.

This full time course is delivered in partnership with the BBC and designed to thoroughly train participants in becoming a key member of a filmed drama or television production team.
Participants will learn from practical hands-on workshops and through on set and in studio experience on a range of drama and entertainment projects. This will ensure that participants leave the course with the practical experience for starting out in the professional world.
The Script Supervisor’s role is an exciting, varied and demanding job requiring many skills for being part of the production team, working closely with directors and producers, interacting with performers and programme participants, and providing accurate information on location, in the studio gallery and for the edit suite.
