Building on the success of the previous iterations of the scheme, Film London, supported by ScreenSkills HETV Skills Fund, launched the third Return to Work programme for parents and carers who have been out of the industry and are looking to get back in. The scheme focuses on participants keen to enter or re-enter the Post and VFX sector across the UK and it is also supported by our partners in the regions including Screen Yorkshire, Creative England, Film Wales and Northern Ireland Screen.
Eleven candidates have been accepted onto the scheme to benefit from soft skills training, continued support and a new network that can help guide them at this next chapter in their career.
Following the training, 10 participants will be placed into a part-time fully paid Returnship with leading post and VFX companies including: Molinare, Technicolor, Outpost VFX, Jellyfish Pictures, Bait Studio and Mal Woolford Post. In addition to the training and placement elements, participants have been matched with a mentor who can guide them as they navigate the industry.
The scheme is currently underway and it is not open to applications. To keep up to speed with this and other relevant schemes join the EAN to receive news and updates through our regular mailouts.
