One department, 14-36 months, and a Level 2, 3, 4 or 6 qualification in a related subject at the end of it. You’ll learn who’s who, what’s what and where your department sits in the overall scheme of things. A range of in-depth projects will immerse you in the detail and count towards your qualification. We’re not looking for specific qualifications, but you will need to impress us with your passion for your chosen area and have the potential to stand out from the crowd.

Mia - Pictures Apprentice

Mia - Pictures Apprentice

Before this apprenticeship, I was planning on going to university but knew it didn’t feel like it was going to be the best fit for me. Applying for this apprenticeship at Channel 4 was definitely one of the best decisions of my life. Not only has it given me the confidence I needed to fully recognise my own talents, but it has also allowed me to begin developing them further to build towards a future career in something I’m passionate about.

I currently work as an apprentice within the Pictures Team at Channel 4 learning both the Picture Editor and Picture Commissioner role. I feel excited to go to work every day! I’m learning so much and have already taken part in some cool projects.



Esha - Junior Digital Content Producer Apprentice

Esha - Junior Digital Content Producer Apprentice

Being at Channel 4 has been a delight! I currently have been watching some fun shows and picking out clips that I think would make great content. With my role I also edit content and create images. In just 3 weeks I have managed to create and edit a video for Facebook. The people are so warm and welcoming, I have found it easier than I thought to fit in and I can’t thank my department enough.


Tom - Data Science Intern

Tom - Data Science Intern

I’m Tom and I’m a Data Scientist Intern in the Leeds office. I’m working on a natural language processing project using machine learning and AI to tag Channel 4 shows with descriptive labels as part of my Master’s degree. My favourite thing about working here is the sense of community, everyone has been so supportive and generous with their time. Even though I started remotely due to COVID, I really felt like part of the team straightaway!
