20/20 Productions has received accreditation from Scotland’s Investors in Young People (IIYP).

As an Investors in People (IIP) accredited business since 1999, 20/20 Productions has now also been recognised for its contribution to supporting and developing young people in the workplace.

The Investors in Young People framework, designed by Investors in People Scotland, provides recognition to businesses that meet the requirements and assists in their recruitment, retention and development of young people. To become IIYP accredited, businesses need to undertake an assessment and demonstrate how they meet the framework requirement.

20/20 Productions managing director Alastair Scott said: “We pride ourselves on our commitment to our employees and their training and development. The assessment for IIYP was incorporated into our IIP assessment day and involved our specialist speaking with the team and determining what it is we do to evolve young people within our business and our industry.”

Scott is a regular at events with Edinburgh Napier University and Edinburgh College, encouraging young people, whether or not they’re already considering a career in production, to enter the field.

20/20 Productions has its own mentoring programme with Edinburgh Napier, which includes a selection of employees working with students from the School of Arts & Creative Industries to enhance their learning, including work experience, one to-one learning and placements at events.

As well as dedicating time and resources to developing these young people within the industry, 20/20 Productions has employed a number of students who have undertaken work placements or whom they’ve met at university events.

The company says it will continue working closely with the IIYP body and their designated specialist to enhance its status and work together with local universities, colleges and schools to ensure they continue to be thought leaders within the industry and encourage more and more young people into what is a booming industry.
