Screen craft skill standards

Have your say by 1 March 2024.

E hiahia ana mātou te rongo i tāu e whakaaro ai – we would love to hear from you!

Toi Mai is seeking feedback on a new suite of screen industry skill standards.

These skill standards have been developed in collaboration with industry and address a need for practical training in below-the-line (crew and production) roles in screen production.

It is intended that learners will complete two standards for a role, including:

  • a theory standard to provide the learner with the underpinning knowledge and skills required by the role. It is intended that this will most likely be delivered before the learner enters a screen production workplace, and it is a prerequisite for the practical standard
  • a practical standard that will be assessed in the workplace on a real screen production. Learners will work in the roles and demonstrate the assessment criteria through observation or verification by assessors and workplace supervisors.

Also in development are some New Zealand Certificate qualifications for the screen industry. It is intended that the skill standards will become components of these new qualifications, meaning that completion of standards may lead to a qualification.

Provide your feedback

If you would like to comment on the standards or provide other feedback to inform the review, then please email us with your feedback at [email protected] by Friday 1 March, 2024.
