Introduction to screen sector micro-credential

Consultation closed

The Introduction to the Screen Industry micro-credential and skill standards are designed to be delivered as a short block of learning that gives people who are looking towards gaining employment in the screen industry. It will give learners the knowledge to enable them to make decisions about the nature of work and the pathways into positions on a screen production.

The development of this new micro-credential was driven by industry and gives a way for those who are wanting to gain employment in below-the-line roles to learn about the industry and the roles and skills required.

Learners will gain the 15-credit micro-credential by completing three new proposed skill standards developed by workforce development councils Toi Mai and Ringa Hora:

  1. Demonstrate introductory knowledge of the operations and structure within the Aotearoa screen industry.
  2. Demonstrate knowledge of the processes and ethics required in the Aotearoa screen industry.
  3. Demonstrate knowledge of the business skills required to operate as a contractor in Aotearoa (with Ringa Hora for development).

It is intended that delivery of this micro-credential will be in partnership with industry and include guest speakers and practical experience with real equipment.

This development is just the first step in meeting screen-sector needs. Further qualifications and standards that will focus on more specific areas of below-the-line roles in screen are currently being developed. This entry-level micro-credential will act as prerequisite knowledge for higher-level skill-focused standards.

The consultation period for the draft micro-credential and skill standards is now closed. These have been submitted to NZQA.
