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.

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, we 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, we 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 - but we’ll still see you 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 with us at 4skills@channel4.co.uk 

Want to find out more about the Production Training Scheme?  

Watch a recording of a workshop we held, 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.
