The YAFTA Film & Television Production Diploma course is a one year, part time, blended learning course. The diploma has been designed for those with little or no experience of film & TV production, who wish to develop the technical skills required to produce content for film & television. This intensive training course will equip students with the necessary technical knowledge and skills to start gaining work experience in the industry.
This is the first course of its kind to be run in the North of the UK and offers the potential for those who wish to pursue a career in film & television production, the opportunity to do so.
Unlike traditional University or college courses, YAFTA’s diploma focuses entirely on the skills that are necessary to work in production including the technical, practical, circumstantial and realistic aspects of working in the film and TV industry. This understanding and appreciation of the industry, in addition to excellent technical ability for their chosen role in production, is vital if students are going to go on to have a successful career.
The main objective of the YAFTA Film & TV Production Diploma is to give students an overall understanding of film & TV production, teaching students about the different roles that they can undertake in production and giving them the opportunity to undertake these roles for themselves. We aim to produce students who not only possess excellent technical ability but that also have a clear understanding of the realities of working in the film & TV industry.
YAFTA’s Film & TV Production Diploma course aims to equip students with the practical and technical knowledge and skills to work in Film & TV production, as well as teaching students about the routes into the industry and how to start gaining work. The course is delivered by an impressive team of teaching talent who are all currently working in film and TV production, on the biggest and best known productions in the U.K. This ensures that students are learning from top industry professionals throughout their diploma programme education at YAFTA. Furthermore, the course offers an excellent opportunity to network with those who are currently working in the industry.
