Funding for training

I graduated from the Assistant Production Accountant Training Scheme 11 years ago. The training and placements on TV and film projects were invaluable. It’s given me the head start I needed to get into the industry and build a career in production accounting.
Meet our current APATS trainees
Our current assistant production accountant trainees are about to embark on several industry placements ranging from high-end TV drama to blockbuster films.
"The course offered a realistic grounding in film production that allowed me to access a wide range of mentors, industry contacts, knowledge and experience that upon completing the course meant I could move forward in my career with a happy feeling of confidence. I really value the support of everyone at the Production Guild which has continued long after my completion of the course. "
