A fully-funded course to help get you into one of the industry’s most in-demand roles


All TV and film productions require skilled Production Managers in all phases of production.

At the pre-production planning stage, Production Managers are deeply involved in each aspect of locations, budgets, crewing, scheduling, and transport logistics. During filming, they are a crucial senior member of the team, in charge of every aspect of successful production, with special emphasis on health and safety of crew and equipment.

The key skills and attributes of a successful Production Manager are those that excel at planning and communications, those that work well under pressure and have a detail-oriented approach. They must be adept negotiators with a wide range of contacts and knowledge of the relevant laws and regulations.

This Production Manager course will provide students with all the necessary skills and relevant experiences in order to gain a Production Co-Ordinator or Production Manager role within the media industry.

Post pandemic there is a lack of suitably qualified Production Managers within the media industry so we have designed this course to fill this gap.

There has been considerable research carried out on the Production Managers’ skills shortage within the media industry here on this comprehensive report.

The BFBS Production Managers course is designed for service leavers and veterans with a keen interest in the world of media and who wish to use their existing skillset within a new and challenging environment.

The role of Production Manager or Production Co-ordinator may be new to you, however, once you realise that this role involves all aspects of planning and supporting the wider production team – overseeing a project from concept to delivery, you will see that it dovetails very well with your previous military experiences.

The course will run from Monday 26th June 2023, finishing the week commencing 29th January 2024.

Applications are now open!

The closing date for applications is Friday 3rd February 2023
