APA Masterclass 2016 – Introducing a brand new formula

The APA Masterclass is now in its 15th year and continues to go from strength to strength, with a record number of students graduating last year. It has become an essential part of the training of production staff on their way to becoming producers.

Every year we introduce some new elements, based on feedback from tutors and students. This year sees a complete revamp.

We are moving from weekly sessions to one intense week of training. That will ensure students are completely immersed in the Masterclass and in the space of one week- with lots of effort from them too- get a unique insight into every aspect of production, via the industry experts who deliver the course. It is going to be quite a week, so if you are ambitious to develop your career in production and prepared for a week of intense learning, we look forward to receiving your application.

One Week Intense Course

In previous years, the course was spread across 12 weeks with sessions held weekly. In 2016, the APA Masterclass will be structured as a week long intensive course, and students being introduced and lectured on all attributes and elements of production from the script stage up to the delivery. The Masterclass will be traditionally finished with the APA Masterclass Exam.

The APA Masterclass 2016 will be held from the 15th – 19th February 2016 at University of London, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HY. All days will be starting at 0900 and finishing at approx 1800
