The new Kelvin Hall studio development in Glasgow, run by BBC Studioworks, is set to play a key role in producing entertainment shows in Scotland and the demand for skilled crews is expected to grow significantly. There has never been a more exciting time to work in TV entertainment in Scotland. The expansion of the sector also creates opportunities for developing the next generation of TV practitioners.

NFTS Scotland’s Multi-Camera TV Conversion Programme, supported by Screen Scotland, BBC Studioworks and Glasgow City Council is an intense three-week kickstarter programme; a week based at Kelvin Hall with access to BBC Studioworks’ studio facility and two weeks in the National Film & Television School’s state-of-the-art 4K TV studio in Beaconsfield – equipped with the latest Sony cameras as used by BBC Studioworks. The course is free to participants and accommodation and travel to Beaconsfield are paid for.

The course is designed to take individuals who already have some experience in the screen industries or who have transferable skills from other sectors and give them the working practices, knowledge and understanding of multi-camera production to kick start their careers in studio entertainment production. All participants will be given a tour of the Kelvin Hall studio and will spend time with the BBC Studioworks team who run the facility.

In the year* following the three-week course, BBC Studioworks will provide work placements for each of the participants, giving them the opportunity to shadow professionals in their craft specialism. The length of these placements will be a minimum of four weeks and will take place at Kelvin Hall or another of BBC Studioworks’ studio facilities. During the placements, participants will be paid the real Living Wage. * this period may be extended depending on availability of suitable placements.
