Production Guild course in Production Management
The Production Guild has launched a shiny new training course for those wishing to move into production management.
The course takes place from 8 February to 4 March at Pinewood Studios, and is aimed at those working in production or post-production who wish to make the transition into production management.
The closing date for the Production Manager Training scheme is 8 January; you can find full application details here.
This course is subsidised through Creative Skillset. There is additional funding to support participants permanently residing outside London and the south east and individuals based outside these areas are encouraged to apply.
