Super indie launches scheme, while ents development training begins in Scotland
All3Media has launched a production accountant apprenticeship scheme to create a pipeline of accountancy talent for the super-indie group.
The scheme’s first six successful candidates - Precious Adewole, Joe Berry, Emmanuel Falola, Mongi Mabhena, Charandev Singh and Gina Kellock - will spend two years on the programme and be assigned to All3Media production companies.
They will do a formal Level 3 accountancy apprenticeship, accredited by professional body AAT, alongside a series of placements including on productions and in the Payroll Bureau.
The aim of the scheme is to help tackle the industry’s chronic skills shortage in production accountancy. Each apprentice will be assigned their own manager who will oversee their progress, support their learning and act as a mentor.
All3Media partnered with Kaplan UK for the scheme.
