Working with us
If you are interested in future positions please upload your CV and a covering letter by clicking on one of the main areas below. You can submit in more than one category if you wish. The Film Academy is most interested in tutors who have a number of strings to their bow.
The Film Academy tutors are all experienced film and TV professionals, who have a flair, and often experience, in teaching children the ins and outs of the film industry and making films. If you would like to be part of this dynamic team you must have a passion for both.
The Academy runs two days, after school, Wednesday and Friday, for two hours each day, running either one hour or two hour workshops. The year starts mid September through to mid June, breaking for all school holidays, and in addition we run two summer camps, each five days in duration.
Tutors do not work every week, which has the advantage of fitting in the tutoring around their professional work at the same time as being able to pass on current experience to the students.
There are three groups; 9-12s, Under 15s and 15+. The 9-12s make up to three short films a year, whilst the two teen groups concentrate on one, high production value film each.
Applicants must have a PVG through Disclosure Scotland. This can be done through the Film Academy if you do not possess one already, but must be in place before any work can be offered.
Ideally you will hold a current first aid certificate, but the Film academy runs regular courses if you do not have one.
Tutors are freelance and as such invoice the Film Academy once a month, and are paid an hourly rate plus any travel expenses.
