Donna Taberer, Chair of the RTS Futures committee, says: “Finding a way into the broadcasting industry is notoriously difficult. Traditional entry points have changed and it’s not always easy to work out who is accepting applicants. The RTS Futures Entry Level Training Fair was launched in 2015 to provide those looking to get into television with valuable information about the companies which take on trainees, apprentices and interns. Following the success of this event, which saw over 400 candidates meet with leading companies from within the industry, we are delighted to see it return and welcome the participation of so many leading players.”
RTS Futures has also put together a comprehensive guide to entry-level training schemes and placements, which can be found at: http://www.rtsfutures.org.uk/entry-level-training-find-right-training-you.
