Unfortunately these courses are only available to residents of Greater Manchester.

To participate in each course you will need:

  • A laptop or desktop PC or Mac
  • An internet connection
  • Access to Zoom (including a compatible camera and microphone on your computer)
  • A mobile phone and email address

As the content creation course is delivered entirely on-line the above equipment is essential.

The production management course will be delivered in part on-site at The Sharp Project in Newton Heath, Manchester so participants will need a laptop.

The course applications are open to residents of Greater Manchester aged 18 and over.
