Abstract

In discussion with our partners at Middlesex University in late 2021, we recognised that this body of evidence and experience represented an opportunity to increase the focus on these work-ready skills and experiences, and to provide greater clarity and support for both educators and industry in developing and articulating these more effectively. While stakeholders frequently mention work-ready or transferable skills, they very rarely refer to a consistent list of what these skills and experiences actually are, beyond one or two examples such as team-working or problem-solving. It is even rarer still to see reference to a more detailed list of what these competencies involve in terms of work-related tasks.
In April 2022, ScreenSkills (through its BFI Future Film Skills project) and Middlesex University came together to set up the “WRYSE” project to address these challenges and opportunities. The partnership convened a working group of 26 educators and industry professionals for the project, drawn from companies and institutions around the UK regions and nations. The industry professionals include representatives from games, HETV, unscripted TV, film and animation, from broadcasters to SME companies and freelancers.
