Getting into television can seem almost impossible on so many different levels. While the application and interview process can be notoriously challenging and competitive, it can be just as hard to even find those opportunities to apply for in the first place! As a new entrant, it’s not easy to work out which companies take on trainees, apprentices and interns, and if so, at what time of year and how to apply. And what if you love telly, are full of ideas and know you’ve got the right attitude, but don’t have any experience? Where can you get a chance to try things out and find out where your strengths and interests lie?
These are the questions we’re aiming to help you answer on Monday 26 January, when we’ll be hosting the first ever RTS Futures Training Fair. For one evening, we’ll be bringing together under one roof a formidable range of organisations offering entry routes into telly, all keen to meet you! Confirmed exhibitors include the BBC, Channel 4, Creative Access, Discovery, Disney, ITV, Latimer Group, Mama Youth, Media Trust/London 360, The Network, Procam, RDF, Roundhouse/Bloomberg, Sara Putt Associates and Sky, with possibly a few more exciting names to join.
IMPORTANT : It is free to attend this fair however you must register as an RTS Member using your membership number before booking your ticket. Membership of the RTS is also free.
