Screen NETS is an on the job training programme recruiting new entrants from all over Scotland for technical, production and design roles in high-end TV and film.

Our ethos is to open doors for those who can’t break into the industry due to barriers faced, have no friends or family in the business or the financial means to establish themselves as a new entrant. Many of today’s industry practitioners have come through the programme and continue to support new trainees each year with placements and mentoring.

Trainees are recruited for 9 months to work across a range of feature film and TV drama and are paid the Real Living Wage with support and guidance throughout. We are about to start recruitment for our 2023 programme, please see below.
