Working alongside the UK’s leading providers, The National Youth Film Academy is passionate about film apprenticeships. Over the past 4 years, we have placed over 300 apprentices with companies such as VERTIGO FILMS, AMBER ENTERTAINMENT and BEACH CASTING.
We offer a completely free and impartial apprentice matching service to industry. You pay no recruitment fees.
We have a huge database of vetted young filmmakers. Our policy is to only recruit young people with the right aspiration, attitude and talent to succeed in film.
- A minimum of £3.50 per hour (although you may choose to pay more). This is for a minimum of 30 hours per week with a maximum of 40 hours per week.
- If an apprentice is aged 16-18 then the provider or college draw down 100% of the government grant to support their learning and assessment.
- If they are 19-23 then only 50% of the funding is available and the employer is asked to make up the rest.
- After completing their apprenticeship 90% of apprentices stay in employment, 71% with the same employer (source: National Apprenticeship Week).
