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. In 2022/23 we will be offering paid places at one of the UK's independent production companies for 12 months. This round, we will be offering placements in scripted television (i.e. drama). For those of you interested in placements with unscripted companies (factual, entertainment, documentaries etc.) another round of the PTS will open later in 2022.

Our first cohort will open for applications from Monday 18th October with opportunities available across the UK in Yorkshire, Liverpool, Glasgow, and London.

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 your further your career.

The scheme will begin in January 2022 and applications will open on Monday 18th October and close on Monday 8th November at 12 noon.

If you require any adjustments to complete your application, please get in touch with us at
