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. In 2021/22 we will be offering paid places at one of the UK's independent production companies for 12 months. Roles are available across the UK. 

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. If you have no prior experience or education take a look at our Production Apprenticeship (below).

Anyone can apply to the programme, but the scheme is particularly aimed at people with disabilities, or from BAME communities or disadvantaged backgrounds. These groups are currently underrepresented in the television industry which is something we want to change.

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 at Channel 4 for training to help your further your career.

Applications for the Production Training Scheme will next open in 2021.
