Animated Women UK has announced that its 'Achieve Programme' is open for entries. The programme, which first ran in 2017, focuses on supporting women in the VFX and animation industries.

Funded and supported by Creative Skillset, Disney, and Escape Studios, The Achieve Programme is open to women either in the VFX and animation industries looking to address the challenges and barriers faced on a day-to-day basis. It aims to provide strategic career management and is run by acknowledged career development experts.

The course is open to women at all stages in their career and applications are now being accepted until 31 January. A total of 24 participants will be selected.

Run by executive coach, Marianne O'Connor and experienced coach, facilitator and trainer specialising in women's leadership development, Jan Armstrong, the course will consist of six sessions, taking place every two weeks in central London.

Beth Parker, Co-Chair Animation, Animated Women UK, said: "The past few months have put women's position in the workplace right in the spotlight. Finally our voices are being heard, and The Achieve Programme aims to support women to find the platform that will ensure their voices continue to be loud and proud. I am immensely proud of what The Achieve Programme represents and to provide women in the animation industry with the tools to help them progress within their careers."

Louise Hussey, Co-Chair VFX, Animated Women, added: "It has been great to hear from last year's attendees that The Achieve Programme has equipped them with the confidence and skills to further their careers in our industries. The support we have from Creative Skillset, Disney and Escape Studios for this programme allows AWUK to help create a network of women all experiencing the same challenges, enabling them to overcome them together."

Fees for the Achieve Programme costs £225 for senior participants, £175 for mid level and £75 for junior level for the full set of sessions, and will consist of evening workshops in central London.
