SUPPORTING REGIONAL CREW TO STEP UP INTO SENIOR CREW POSITIONS WITH THE HELP OF TRAINED AND EXPERIENCED MENTORS.
Set for Success is a Screenworks initiative designed to build the capacity of skilled below-the-line practitioners in regional Australia. It is financed with the assistance of Screen Australia and will be delivered in association with Creative Plus Business.
Skills gap shortages across Australia have been pushing crew members into more senior crew roles before they are sufficiently trained. There is a recognised need for mentoring, guidance and onset training to support crew and build their confidence as they step up to work in their new roles on set. Screenworks’ Set for Success program will help increase the number of skilled crew across the country by training and up skilling regional practitioners.
Screenworks Set for Success is a practical on-set training program that taps into the skills and industry knowledge of accomplished senior crew and HODs, engaging them as mentors for crew that are training into more senior roles.
Screenworks Set for Success will work with some of Australia’s top production companies to provide opportunities for regional crew to step into more senior, much-needed crew roles under the guidance of experienced mentors.
If you are a regionally based crew member ready to step up into a new role, or an experienced HOD and keen to become a mentor or a production company with a shoot coming up and want to talk about upskilling a regional crew member, please email [email protected] for more information.
