The National Film and Television School (NFTS) is to launch a new part time blended learning course, for those looking to develop their career within Post Production Supervision. WarnerMedia/HBOAccess and Netflix have partnered with the School, helping it develop and launch the certificate course which has been specifically designed to meet the demand for more trained Post co-ordinators and supervisors working within the high end television and film industry. 

From technical, scheduling and budgetary information to building relationships within the industry, the new Post Production Supervision Certificate offers insight and training into the practical elements of this highly specialised sector. The course will arm students with the skills and knowledge needed to hit the ground running as a Post Production Co-ordinator and provide them with a foundation to move swiftly up the career ladder.

As part of the NFTS’ commitment to furthering diversity and inclusion within the film and television industry, with support from WarnerMedia/HBOAccess and Netflix, the School will provide financial assistance to successful applicants from under-represented communities. This will include help with travel fees and costs, particularly for those students joining from outside London.

The first intake of the 24 week certificate will start in January 2021 with an application deadline of 3 October 2020.  Made up of five modules, it will predominantly be delivered via a weekly Zoom webinar and through five face to face sessions taking place on a Saturday at the NFTS teaching space in Golden Square, London. 

An advisory board will include senior members of the post production community including:

  • Cynthia Kanner, Senior Vice President of Post Production at WarnerMedia/HBOAccess who as launch partner, played a pivotal role in developing the course.
  • Alison Beckett, Director of Post Production at Netflix in the UK with 15 years of experience in the sector.
  • Gemma Nicholson, who has 20 years of experience in different roles across film and television including post-production and who will lead the course.

Along the way, members of the board will deliver special Masterclasses as part of the course with insight from influential industry figures.

NFTS Director Jon Wardle commented: “The NFTS is continuously identifying training gaps in the creative industries and we are thrilled to launch this pioneering new course, in partnership with WarnerMedia/HBOAccess and Netflix. No other training provision currently exists to provide a pathway into post production, a vitally important and underserviced sector of high end TV and film production. As the screen industry recovers, a new wave of rigorously trained post production co-ordinators and supervisors entering the sector will be critical to propelling it forward into a new era.” 

WarnerMedia/HBOAccess Senior Vice President of Post Production, Cynthia Kanner added: 


“I am excited that Netflix is joining with us and NFTS to address two significant issues in post production: the need for diversity in staffing and an overall need for training in high end TV and film. The new certificate program will provide detailed post production instruction and a new path for bringing people from diverse backgrounds into the industry. WarnerMedia/ HBOAccess are thrilled to initiate this new project and to fulfill our goal of bringing some of its graduates onto our shows.” 

Netflix Director of Post Production, Alison Beckett added: “This is an incredibly exciting time for UK film and television and we are proud to partner with the NFTS and WarnerMedia/HBO Access on this important new course, as we work to unlock and champion opportunities for everyone, across the industry.”

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.


We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.


FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
