Post production trainee scheme announced for Wales

First Post, the new entrant trainee scheme for the post production industry, will be launched in Wales starting next month.

Skillset, the Sector Skills Council for the audio visual industries, and Soho Editors have partnered with television facilities company Barcud Derwen to deliver the scheme in Wales.

The modular programme covers technical, commercial and customer skills and is designed to help employers provide structured professional development for junior members of staff within facility houses and production companies.

Gwawr Hughes, director of Skillset Cymru, said: "We are very pleased First Post is coming to Wales and run by Barcud Derwen, one of the UK's largest facilities companies. Trainees will receive a thorough grounding in technical operations, customer and commercial skills. It will be held over three weeks, one week a month, with day release sessions including interactive learning, classroom lectures, visits to different facilities and presentations from industry experts."

Bryn Roberts, group managing director of Barcud Derwen - the company delivering the scheme - said: "First Post Wales will equip participants with the skills employers really want. It has been informed by UK Post & Services, the trade body that represents the film and broadcast service industry and by the companies who send members of staff on the course."

The Scheme will start in September 2007 and will be subsidised by the Welsh Assembly Government.
