Freelance careers launched by FT2

14 young people, who have this summer completed film and industry funded training, will formally launch their freelance careers at an FT2 graduation event, to be held this evening at Channel 4 Television.
All have completed the FT2 New Entrants Technical Training Programme - two years on-the-job training, backed up with industry specific short course training and assessment for Skillset Professional Qualifications. They are tonight graduating in a range of technical, craft and production assistant positions.
Graham Day, Sound Assistant, who next week starts his first contract on BBC comedy 'Absolute Power' said: "FT2 is a very good opportunity to get experience and get a foot in the door of the film and television industry."
Mark Swailes, Assistant Editor, now working on the feature film 'Mona Lisa Smile' added: "I think it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I got everything I wanted out of the training and it's paid off because I'm now working."
