On Wednesday 20th of November 2013 over 50 Gwynedd school pupils visited Galeri, Caernarfon to attend a one-day conference, organised by Cyfle, to find out more about the career opportunities available in the creative industries.
Here’s a short report on the day’s activities from our Project Manager, Shân Gwenfron -
Creating content of the highest quality is one of the most important things in the creative industries, and as part of a very busy week here at Cyfle, we are busy giving individuals from a wide range of ages a series of development and content creation skills.
S4C will be handing the channel over to the next generation of broadcasters next week as part of ‘It’s Our Turn’ (Tro Ni) season, and it’s the Cyfle Apprentices who are currently following the Higher Level Apprenticeship in Creative and Digital Media (Interactive Media Pathway) who will be taking a central role in the provision!

With the days getting shorter the Cyfle team have been busy once again bringing the highest quality training to the industry.
This time we visited the excellent BBC studios at Roath Lock, Cardiff Bay in order to develop the next generation of large sensor camera operators.
“I’ve had some fantastic training over the two days, and have really enjoyed myself” Gethin Williams
“So here we go – the day has finally dawned – to welcome the seven employers, and nine apprentices to Cyfle at the beginning of their higher level apprenticeship. At a quarter to three, there was enough Bara Brith, Welshcakes, tea and coffee to feed the masses. I just hope enough people come to enjoy it!
The BAFTA Cymru awards night came around again on Sunday 29th of September 2013, and the Cyfle posse were there in their ‘glad rags’ to support all the nominees..especially two of Cyfle’s former trainees of course!
It was an entertaining evening with the sunshine ensuring that the posh frocks and red carpet kept dry. We were there to celebrate Welsh talent, and there was a lot to celebrate!
Catrin Elen Rees, our fantastic Office Assistant who has been working with Cyfle over the summer has now left the building (with a view to returning in future we hope!)
Before she left, she put together a little video for us, based on a little bug-bear of ours…how people pronounce (or mis-pronounce) CYFLE!
You’ve heard from the would-be apprentices about how they felt about the recruitment workshops for our Interactive Media Apprentices, now you can hear from the person in charge on the day, Sue Jeffries, Cyfle’s Chief Executive. Read More
August has been recruitment time here at Media Apprentice HQ, Cyfle. We have been busy bees searching for 10 talented young people to become part of the new Apprenticeships in Creative and Digital Media – Interactive Media (level 4).
On the 27th of August one of the most exciting parts of the recruitment process, The Recruitment Workshop took place.
This process is always something we enjoy but it takes a lot of work from us and huge amounts of energy from those we invite to the workshop day.
As an added challenge, the potential employers requested a further task from the
participants this time. Following on from the workshop they were asked to write an
appraisal of the day.
What follows are extracts from the pieces submitted, an Apprentice’s View of the day.
We thought they were too good not to share!…
