Working in Sound: Experienced is a free, 8-week online course for women and people of marginalised genders in the Yorkshire and Humber region created by SIGN and Yorkshire Sound Women Network (YSWN).

This course will support people who already have some experience of working with audio technology and are looking to develop a career in sound.

Undertaking this course will give you the opportunity to develop new or existing technical skills such as using a digital audio workstation (DAW) and video editing software. Each lesson will be delivered online. You’ll work through a series of live sessions covering technologies and techniques, as well as careers information and advice about working with sound in the screen industries.
