Useful careers websites

This page provides numerous useful career related websites which can help students in terms of their post 16 choices, whether they want to go into further education or work based training. 

 

https://career-insights.co.uk/video-library/

 https://www.screenskills.com/careers/job-profiles/film-and-tv-drama/ 

This website is dedicated to the Film and Drama Industry which is rapidly growing. The industries include jobs in the production of feature films in the UK and the ways in which audiences get to see them, whether that be in cinemas, on TV, or through streaming channels like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. 

There are opportunities for people with a very wide range of skills to work in film and TV drama.  It’s not just for people writing the screenplay and operating the cameras.  The industry needs electricians for setting up the lights, carpenters and plasterers to build the sets, accountants to keep the books and people who enjoy law to negotiate the selling of rights. Have a look at the different departments. Learn how a film is financed, made and distributed, or how a TV drama is put together. Find a job role that interests you and click on it to learn what you need to do to get it.
