ScreenSkills is asking for industry feedback on the drafts of the new apprenticeship standards, which inform the development of apprenticeships in the creative industries, covering a wide range of job roles from animation to post-production.

We are working with leading employers and professional bodies in England to identify the apprenticeships needed, and the skills, knowledge and behaviours that are needed to work in the screen industries.

We have now finished the draft version of the media production coordinator standard. To ensure that the standards reflect what currently is considered best practice in the industry, we encourage professionals to download the draft here and send any feedback to  by 17.00 on Tuesday 10 September 2019.

Please invite anyone else who might want to have a say to participate in the consultation.

If you choose to give feedback, please give us your thoughts on the duties that underpin the knowledge, skills and behaviours identified so far and add anything that you feel is missing.

The attached document contains three sections:

  • overview of what the role of media production coordinator entails
  • typical job titles for the role
  • duties (nine core duties and two optional duties) which are tailored to the work environment of the apprentice

Upcoming standards

We will be asking for further input from industry in upcoming months. If you are interested in joining the employer working groups to discuss the apprenticeship standards, or have queries regarding the development process, please contact us at
