Here at YAFTA we are committed to supporting and encouraging those passionate about creating a career in the Film & Television sector, regardless of age, disability, background or ethnicity

We’re committed to ensuring there’s representation on screen from our diverse communities and we’re extremely proud of the success our actors have achieved, including Liam Bairstow who features in Coronation Street and James Moore, who plays Ryan Stocks in Emmerdale and won a National Television Award for Best Newcomer.

We want to level the playing field in the film and TV industry for talented and passionate individuals from under-represented groups and disadvantaged backgrounds and have launched the You Can YAFTA Diploma Scholarship to help do just that!
We’re offering one lucky winner a place on either the 18 month Acting for Screen Diploma or 12 month Film and Television Production Diploma, both worth £7,700. The Acting Diploma will commence February 2020 and the TV and Film Production Diploma in October 2020.
YOU CAN SCHOLARSHIP 2020-2021

Our exclusive, part-time Diploma programmes are taught by skilled, industry experts and offer full assessment and review throughout. With an educational focus on academic understanding applied through practical experience and a competency based structured syllabus, we prepare our students to start gaining work experience within the industry.

Applicants must be over 16 and from an under-represented, minority or disadvantaged background.

HOW TO APPLY

To apply, please fill in the appropriate application form. Shortlisted candidates must be able to attend the audition date on Thursday 23rd January 2020.

Please send any questions to [email protected] with ‘You Can Scholarship‘ as the subject.

YAFTA is delighted to launch the campaign with support from YAFTA actor, James Moore

“It’s so important we encourage and support people from under-represented backgrounds to pursue a career in film and television if that’s what they dream of doing. Your background, race, religion or disability should not be a barrier and this scholarship will hopefully give someone a brilliant opportunity to start their acting career”

ACTOR

Award winning, and rising star within the Film and TV industry, Blockbuster Production Manager and Bradford born, Umar Hussain is also supporting the campaign.

"This scholarship from YAFTA is a fantastic chance for someone who aspires to have a career in the Film and TV industry but feel it’s not a sector open to them. I’m proof there is so much opportunity and potential out there, you’ve just got to believe and go for it."
