Looking for a communications-led role to break into the industry? Production accounting will take you right to the heart of a production, where an understanding of story is as important as competency working with numbers.
This professional development course will give you a broad overview of the roles, functions and purpose of the accounting team on a UK film or TV production.
Learn practical skills by taking part in real-world scenarios and find out exactly what goes on in a production office, from understanding the structure of a film crew and production timelines to estimating the final cost of a show.
Work with a small group and an expert tutor. You’ll emerge with an understanding of the role, its career progression, an awareness of whether you’d like to work in a production accounts office, and the know-how to get your first role.
This course is introductory and suitable for beginners. We also have an advanced course for those with at least two years of industry experience: Step Up to Production Accountant.
Our professional skills training has been independently accredited for integrity and quality. All learners receive certificates of completion detailing CPD learning hours.
You may be eligible for a ScreenSkills training bursary for this course.
