    First established in 1971, the National Film and Television School (NFTS) has evolved to become a leading global institution, developing some of Britain's and the world’s top creative talent in film, television, and games. It is widely acknowledged to be the top school of its kind in the UK and one of the best internationally, being named as one of The Hollywood Reporter’s top international film schools for over a decade.

    As an experienced film and/or tv professional you will have the knowledge and practical experience of industry customs and practices and production processes, a proven ability to define the style and structure of a film or television project, and importantly understand the necessity of engaging positively with the other key production departments. Some previous experience in teaching and learning is preferred.
