Traineeships target national skills shortage in the film industry: Screenworks, Netflix and the NSW government in partnership

ACFIPS, the NSW Industry Training Advisory Body for the Creative Industries, congratulates Screenworks, a screen industry charity based in Ballina, for establishing this fantastic partnership with Netflix and the NSW government. The partnership will provide 12-month traineeships and free skills training for entry into screen industry careers to address a national shortage of film crews.

Over the last two years, ACFIPS has been tirelessly advocating for training assistance in regional areas to attract and keep young people in the Screen, Media, and Live Production businesses. Traineeships are the answer to providing a wage and upgrading skills with nationally recognised qualifications.

ACFIPS also looks forward to the success of this partnership which will help support the establishment of screen and media as a major industry for NSW.

Which school subjects should you choose?

These flyers are suitable for both school-based apprenticeships or post-school apprenticeships. Each flyer sets out a possible career path for the student and then suggests the elective subjects that will make that career path possible. The subject lists cover choices in years 9 & 10 and 11 & 12. The flyers are designed to make sourcing information easy for careers advisers too. Each flyer features a strong, identifiable image that indicates each type of apprenticeship. Laid out side by side, comparisons between subject choices are simple.

If you’re interested in the same sort of flyers for the Construction, Plumbing, Signs & Graphics, Painting & Decorating and Fire Sprinkler Fitting industry sectors, you’ll find them at the Apprenticeship Engagement Forum website
