The Pipeline is delighted to be working with ScreenSkills on a fantastic new training programme for edit assistants and technical operators.

The Unscripted Edit Assistants and Technical Operators Programme is supported by the ScreenSkills Unscripted TV Skills Fund which invests in training for the unscripted workforce thanks to contributions from BBC, Channel 4, Sky, A+E Networks UK, Discovery UK, Channel 5 and Netflix matched by production companies.

This is a highly competitive programme targeted at participants from the nations and regions, to support career development. There are 42 places available for those currently working in post production looking to step up, new entrants with an interest in pursuing a career in post production and others with transferable skills and/ or experience in this sector.
