About the apprenticeship
The crew on a film or TV production is made up of a variety of different departments, and can be entirely staffed by freelancers who move from production to production. As a CRIW Apprentice, you'll be working alongside freelancers and could be in any department, including:
Assistant Directors - ensuring good communication on set between departments, working with cast and supporting artists
Production Office - providing logistical support by organising travel/accommodation, generating and distributing paperwork
Locations - making sure the location or studio is ready to shoot and maintained throughout the shoot day, and new locations prepared
Art department - offering support with props and set work.
Post-Production - dealing with audio and visual files, injest, and rushes running.
The CRIW Apprenticeship scheme is a brilliant way to come into the industry since it shows people how the sector really works, as the apprentices will be moving from production to production, dependent on shooting schedules.
The role offers opportunities to gain essential experience of the process of producing content and offers wide-ranging networking opportunities that are valuable within the Media sector.
Production placements will be based in north Wales, however, some may require apprentices to travel on occasion to sets and filming locations based elsewhere.

Yes, we are part of the Disability Confident Scheme from the UK Department for Work and Pensions.
Please note that all apprenticeships are open to everyone. However, some organisations have worked to achieve Disability Confident accreditation. You should always apply for the apprenticeship you feel best suited to.
Following the shortlisting of applications, the successful applicants will be invited to a virtual Workshop. Here you will be able to meet the Sgil Cymru team. Following this day, the employers may invite you for a further individual interview. We will inform you if you need to prepare any material for the interview. However, you will be required to demonstrate your skills, knowledge and potential to take part in this programme. If you are successful following the interview, you will be required to sit initial assessments in numeracy, literacy and digital literacy. Sgil Cymru will then notify you by e-mail that you have secured a place.
