FT2 Training Activity to cease
The problems around funding training have sadly seen another casualty. From this month, the Film and Television Freelance Training organisation FT2 has ceased all training activitydue to a lack of funding after 25 years in the field.
The stark news is announced at their website www.ft2.org.uk
Set up in 1985 to address the problem of the decline of training opportunities within a staff environment, FT2 had been responsible for training more than 300 people, many of whom subsequently progressed well in the industry. Now it looks as if this valuable training option has gone although there is mention of discussions around establishing a new craft and technical centre of excellence.
