Halo Films was one of the first media companies in the South West of England to have an apprentice. Two years ago our digital assistant, Andy joined as part of the Creative Skillset, Government backed scheme. He became a full time member of the team in August 2012. The media apprenticeships are fully regulated and provide support for the employer as well as a structured entry into the industry for the young people involved.
So, in August 2013 two new people will start work at Halo, Sam Warr and Tess Benjamin. Their apprenticeship will be run through Cirencester College, with much of their formal training done there.
These are exciting times for Halo as these new roles further cements our relationships with local colleges and Universities. Being a business in a tough industry to start out in, we see a major part of our job as being aware of our social responsibility. Our new apprentices are part of the future and we are proud of that.
