Student Handbook


We strive for MASTERY

We know that mastering this craft is a life-long endeavour. There is always more to learn.

We encourage DARING

Nothing great ever came from playing it safe. We are bold. We take risks.

We believe in MERITOCRACY

Talent always gets a fair go here, wherever it comes from.

We practice GENEROSITY

We’re open to the world and each other. The stories we share nurture our culture.


We are in this together, working to create a whole that’s bigger than ourselves.


The Australian Film Television Radio and School would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners, the Bidjigal people and Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, on whose land we meet, work, study and teach. We pay our respects to Elders past and present, and extend our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from all nations of this land.
