Production Training Scheme

Production Training Scheme

Production Training Scheme

Our Production Training Scheme is open to anyone who wants to learn about what goes into making great television programmes.

Production Training Scheme

The Channel 4 Production Training Scheme is for entry level talent who want to break into the media industry and are passionate about making television programmes.

Please note: applications for the 2022/23 scripted television cohort have now closed. For those of you interested in placements with unscripted companies (factual, entertainment, documentaries etc.) the next round of the PTS will open later in 2022 and further information will be available in due course.

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 - but we’ll still see you once a month for training to help you further your career. 

If you have any questions, please get in touch with us at

Watch a recording of our recent workshop below to find out more about the Production Training Scheme, what makes a great candidate, and how to take your first steps into TV

This is an hour-long session and includes insights from a former Channel 4 trainee, who is now working to create great television, and also one of the independent production companies taking part in the scheme. A BSL interpreter is present and captions are available.
