The YAFTA Film & Television Production Diploma course is a one year, part time, blended learning course
Online Interactive Delivery from January 2021
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.
We have adapted our course to meet the demands of an unpredictable post-COVID world which largely operates online. As such, many components of the course will be delivered online, with the opportunity for students to attend YAFTA for filming if possible. If this is not possible, they can complete their filming projects from their home location.
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.
