train with us

Crawley Film Initiative is a registered learning provider which offers free training for young learners between the ages of 16 – 25. We also do in-school workshops for those under 16 with our fully credited team. Find out more below. 


We offer 6 week traineeships which focus on development, (writing, budgeting & planning) production, (filmmaking & sound op) post-production (editing, colour grading, soundscapes, sound design) & distribution (marketing, PR & streaming). These courses are aimed at up-skilling young people between 16-25, providing new opportunity & discovery, plus developing vital interpersonal skills. These skills will be transferable in multiple workplaces moving forward. If you’re interested in training with us please reach out to our team.
