    Endemol Shine Australia (ESA) is thrilled to announce support from the New South Wales Government Jobs Plus Program to take their successful Accelerated Broadcast Post Production Training Program to the next level.

    The Accelerated Broadcast Post Production Training Program provides a ground-breaking combination of theory and practical experience in television post production which will equip students with the skills and opportunities to foster a long lasting career. This exciting project is addressing the talent shortfall in the screen and post-production industry.

    The initiative aims to build workforce capacity and keep post production jobs in Australia.  Successful graduates will have the opportunity to take up roles within ESA’s post production department, creating 30 full-time roles upon graduating thanks to support from the NSW Government’s Jobs Plus Program. The contribution by the NSW Government will be equally matched by ESA.

    This new incentive is an expansion of the work ESA has already done over the past 18 months, since  the conception of their Accelerated Broadcast Post Production Training Program. This program was devised by ESA’s Post Production Consultant Nadia Diggins, alongside ESA’s senior post production executives which saw approximately 40 students efficiently trained in post production, with an 80% employment retention rate. The new program represents a critical step in the long-term investment in the industry’s skilled workforce.

    Endemol Shine Australia Chief Executive Officer Peter Newman said: “I am extremely proud to announce this initiative. I was lucky enough to receive incredible training at the start of my career whilst at the BBC. Since then, I have been passionate about increasing training opportunities for our industry and with the Accelerated Broadcast Post Production Training Program, we are doing just that. This training will be led by our world class post production team at ESA and I’ve got no doubt it will deliver the next generation of brilliant story tellers to our industry. We are incredibly grateful to the NSW Government who will now help us super-size the work we have done in this area into something even more impactful.”

    Nadia Diggins said the objective of the program was to help address the Screen Industries current crew shortage crisis.

    “By nurturing talent with specialised on the job training, we pave the way for the sector’s future superstars and build capacity and depth for the freelance industry.  It’s huge, not just for ESA but for the entire Australian Screen Industry.  The impact of this program will be felt by a new generation of story tellers for their entire careers.”

    ESA has already begun its inaugural intake, welcoming 20+ students into the Accelerated Broadcast Post Production Training 2023 program.

    Prospective applicants for the next intake should send their CV and links of previous work to ESAU Mentor Program via mentorprogram@endemolshine.com.au.

    The incredible initiative is possible thanks to support from the NSW Government’s Jobs Plus Program.
