CULT Cymru is a learning project led by BECTU in partnership with Equity, the Musicians’ Union and the Writers’ Guild. We work with industry workers, employers and other organisations to arrange learning activities and networking events throughout Wales.
Types of learning activities include:

- Digital Skills (e.g. Website creation, Social media, File sharing, Podcasting, Photoshop, CAD….)
- Role Specific (e.g. Make-up and Hair, Camera, Front of House, Voice Coaching, Music Masterclasses, Writing for Games….)
- Statutory (e.g. Accredited – Health and Safety, First Aid at Work, Fire Safety…)
- Mental Health and Wellbeing (e.g. Mental Health First Aid, Resilience, Mindfulness…)
- Equality & Diversity (e.g. Social Model of Disability, Cultural Awareness, Creating Accessible Rehearsals….)
- Coaching & Mentoring
- Train the Trainer
Survey – From Stage to Screen
Unlike the theatres, arts and live events sectors the TV and Film industry is continuing to work in Wales, increased levels of production are resulting in emerging skills shortages in the local freelance workforce for a variety of roles including production management, co-ordination, technical and craft roles and the new COVID-19 Safety Supervisor and Co-ordinator positions.
Bectu through our CULT Cymru project is therefore looking at ways of supporting creatives across the creative sectors in gaining work during these challenging times.
