The Bridge Training is launching a two-year editing training course that will see successful graduates gain a place on the books of freelance agency The Crewing Company.
The paid-for ‘Editing Academy’ will provide students with creative, technical, people and business skills and relevant work experience along with weekly industry seminars and a mentor.
The total cost of the course is £18,970 which includes a MacBook Pro and relevant software.
Prospective candidates will be interviewed to ensure suitability for the programme and an exam will be taken on completion.
A reduced cost bursary is being made available.
Business development manager Triston Wallace said: “Getting into the industry has always meant a long period of low/no pay to get your foot in the door. By offering a bursary place on this sure-fire route to becoming an editor, The Bridge means it is affordable for all.”
The Bridge Training provides courses in creative technology from its HQ (pictured) in Queen’s Yard, East London.
