FTO offers scholarships


FTO will once again partner with Media Development Authority Singapore and ScreenWest as sponsors of the innovative Asia-Australia Media Executive Leadership Program (AAMELP), which this year will be held in Singapore from 22 to 27 November 2009.


FTO is offering three scholarships to senior and mid-level NSW screen professionals to participate in the course. FTO scholarships will cover course fees and accommodation expenses, with applicants being required to cover their own airfares and associated costs.


AAMELP is a five-day course designed to develop entrepreneurial, strategic leadership and management skills to enable participants to strengthen their companies and to meet the challenges of the evolving global marketplace. It is a partner program to the Leadership Program for European Media Executives, held in Strasbourg, France in September, 2009 and the North American Media Executive Program held in Banff, Canada , each year.


The program will draw on extensive international industry expertise in its core faculty and the guest executives. In the course, specific case studies will translate management and leadership development into applied, real situations in the industry. AAMELP includes a rigorous pre-course preparation process, including reading and evaluation, as well as follow-up activities at the one-month, three-month and six-month stage.
