WFTV MENTORING SCHEMES

The WFTV Mentoring Scheme is a programme designed for women looking to take a significant step in their career. We have four dedicated regions that our schemes cover: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

 

We encourage applications from all disciplines and areas of the film, television and digital industries, including creative, craft, technical and business roles. In the past have had a set decorator, a colourist, an agent, a costume designer, a vision mixer, a media lawyer and a composer, in addition to directors, writers and producers.

The scheme runs for six months, during which time participants receive six hours of mentoring contact with an experienced industry figure and an intensive programme of exclusive seminars, training workshops and networking opportunities.

*Please note, you do not need to be a member at the time of applying to the scheme. However if you are chosen for the scheme we would expect you to become a member by the time the scheme starts.
