The GBCT provides an all-encompassing approach to training and education which:
1. Provides its membership with updated information and training courses (some courses are open to non members).
2.Promotes top quality Trainee Schemes for Camera, Script Supervisors, DITs, 3D Stereo ACs and Grips. These Schemes are run at key stages throughout the year to provide productions with trainees in the different roles as and when required.
3. Exemplifies a proactive work ethic that continually analyses industry developments so that all Guild training remains highly relevant, current and practical.
In addition, the GBCT is an active member of the Cine Guilds of Great Britain (CGGB) and the Moving Image Training Alliance (MITA)*. Because of its considerable experience of developing and running a variety of different training courses in the UK and overseas, the GBCT is able to design a jigsaw of courses for different levels of knowledge – not just in cinematography but across a host of the different specialist craft areas that are covered by members of the Cine Guilds.
