Course content

This pioneering course has been designed to produce highly-trained Post Co-ordinators and Post Supervisors to meet critical gaps in the creative industries to propel the sector forward into a new era. You’ll benefit from rigorous training to help you hit the ground running as a Post Production Coordinator who will be ready to confidently move up the ladder.

This part-time Certificate course, delivered in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery/Warner Bros. Discovery Access, Netflix and Prime Video, is designed to give you a grounding in all the different areas that are key in post management, from technical, scheduling and budgetary information and experience to building relationships within the industry.

The course is predominantly delivered via a weekly lecture over webinar, and we deliver five face to face Saturdays at our London base in Golden Square, where we will teach the elements needed to develop your career in Post, with insight from influential industry figures along the way.

You’ll be taught how a project is managed from the start of a production to the finish. You will learn how the Post Management Team works effectively with producers and directors, navigates codes of conduct and keeps a firm hold of schedules, budgets and deal negotiations. In addition, you will be given access to industry professionals to network and assist in the transition to the post production workforce at a co-ordinator level, and have access to job listings through Post-Super.com.
