The Grierson Trust has opened two documentary training schemes that in partnership with Netflix. Each scheme offers eight successful trainees (aged 18+ and UK-based) intensive training, a paid contract on a Netflix documentary production lasting up to three months, an industry mentorship and more.
The schemes are for Documentary Editing and Production Management.
The Production Management scheme is open to applicants with 3+ years’ experience working in a role with transferable skills, including: excellent communication, project management, event management and problem solving. The training will focus on all the logistical and administrative tasks involved in working in documentary production management.
The Editing training programme seeks candidates who have the technical ability to edit, whether that’s on Avid or another editing software, and who want to step up to the role of Assistant Editor. Though the scheme accepts people with proficiency in other editing software, note that the training will be run on Avid.
Both schemes especially welcome applications from people currently under-represented in the industry. That includes, but is not limited to, people from ethnic minority backgrounds, disabled people, those from the LGBTQ+ community and people from lower socio-economic backgrounds.
