The Academies delivered by the three Creative Learning Centres in Belfast, Derry~Londonderry and Armagh, provide training, mentorship and exposure to the film, TV, animation, games and the VFX industry for young people aged 16-19. The Academies partner with a number of award-winning successful companies and freelancers who share their expert knowledge and lead the hands-on industry standard training to prepare young people for a career in their chosen sector.
The Screen Academies are supported by the Department of Communities through Northern Ireland Screen, and part funded by the BFI and Belfast Harbour.
