Am I eligible to apply?

You must be:

  • aged 18 - 30 years on first day of placement
  • a UK resident
  • have a National Insurance number registered at an address in the West of England (Bristol, Bath & North East Somerset, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire)
  • NOT currently enrolled at University or at University when the placement starts
  • available for 4 days per week for the entire placement period (27 January to 31 December 2020).
  • able to demonstrate relevant training/skills for working in the creative industries, e.g. you have a University degree, BTEC, GNVQ or other vocational/practical course or relevant experience demonstrating skills, e.g. through work experience, an apprenticeship or training programmes such as Eight Creative Agency, New Creatives, BFI Film Academy, or a portfolio of outstanding work.

This is an affirmative action scheme, which means we are specifically inviting applications from those not currently widely represented within the creative industries in the region.

This scheme is therefore only open to those who are either/or:

  • from a Black Asian or Minority Ethnic background
  • identify as someone with a disadvantaged socio-economic background

(eg. Type of school attended at age 11-16, free school meal eligibility, parental experience of higher education, carer status, parental occupation when you were aged 14, parental housing situation when you were aged 11-16)
