The Channel 4 Production Training Scheme is open for entry level talent who want to break into the media industry and are passionate about making television programmes. Applications for the next round of the Production Training Scheme with unscripted companies (factual, entertainment, documentaries, etc) are open with 18 opportunities across the UK – in London, Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Belfast and Glasgow.

Due to Channel 4’s ongoing commitment to attracting, recruiting and employing disabled talent, they are opening 5 of the opportunities exclusively to Deaf and/or disabled applicants. These will be based across Glasgow (Firecrest Films & Mighty Productions), Birmingham (North One Television), Manchester (Studio Lambert) and Leeds (True North). However, they would encourage Deaf and/or disabled applicants to apply for any one of the 18 roles available.

Applicants applying for this scheme may already have a degree in Film and Television (or related) or have some previous experience of the television industry through running, work experience or short term placements, but no more than 6 months.  The scheme aims to offer opportunities to those currently underrepresented in the TV industry, so we are particularly keen to hear from Deaf and/or disabled people, ethnically diverse people and people from lower socio-economic groups.

If successful, you’ll spend a week in TV Boot Camp to get things underway. Here, you’ll hear from graduates of the scheme and Commissioning Editors who’ll give you the lowdown on what it takes to succeed. Then your career in TV starts for real at your production company. You will connect with Channel 4 once a month for training to help you further your career.

If you require any adjustments to complete your application or if you have any questions relating to the application process, please get in touch at 4skills@channel4.co.uk
