Production Training Scheme

Production Training Scheme

Production Training Scheme

The Channel 4 Production Training Scheme is aimed at people who may face barriers to access a career in the television industry.

Production Training Scheme 

On the Production Training Scheme, we offer opportunities across the UK, where our trainees get to work for independent production companies for a period of 12 months alongside support and training delivered by thinkBIGGER! 

In week one, trainees spend a week in TV Boot Camp to get things underway. Here, they hear from graduates of the scheme and Commissioning Editors who’ll give them the lowdown on what it takes to succeed. Then their career in TV starts for real at their production company - but they’ll still receive invaluable training each month from thinkBIGGER! to help them further their career.

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 three (3) months cumulatively.

Please follow @Channel4Skills on Twitter or Instagram to keep up to date with our opportunities and to hear first when applications open for our next intake of trainees.


Q&A Webinar

Would you like to know a bit more about how the scheme works?

Each cohort we recruit is different as we partner with various independent production companies however, to get a feel for the scheme you can watch a recording of the Q&A webinar we did for our Paralympics cohort here:

We have a BSL interpreter and captions for the duration of the webinar
