Talent is everywhere. 4Skills seeks it out and gives it somewhere to grow. It doesn’t matter how old you are or where you come from; it’s what you’re passionate about that interests us. Whatever that may be, we’re here to help you find that first opportunity. And our mix of apprenticeships, training schemes and industry talent schemes means nowhere can offer a better starting point.

Whether you want to work with us at Channel 4 or at one of the independent production companies that make our programmes, we can help you take your media career anywhere. So, where would you like to go?


If you’re new to our industry, apprenticeships offer the perfect way in. They’ll give you the experience you need to get on and a qualification to help you take your next step. Plus, you get £19,000 while you’re learning; so they make for a great alternative to university.

Training Schemes

Whether you want to learn about creating great television programmes or help us understand the people who watch them, our training schemes will get your career off to the perfect start.

Our Production Training Schemes are open to anyone who wants to get involved in making innovative television programmes; whether it’s helping to conceive new ideas as a Researcher or bringing those ideas to life as a Production Assistant. Uncovering stories that might not otherwise make headlines will be your focus on our Investigative Journalism scheme. Or, if you’re a graduate who can make numbers tell a story, you can count on our Data Science Programme to make the most of your talent.

Industry Talent Schemes

Storytellers come in as many forms as there are stories to tell. Our talent schemes will help you tell your story your way. These are the paths for aspiring directors and new writing talent to follow. Where they lead is ultimately up to you.

Work Experience

You have to have experience to get a job. But how do you get that experience without getting a job in the first place? You might have an idea of what you want to do. But how do you know you’ll like it until you’ve tried it? These and other questions will be answered during your week’s work experience at Channel 4. No experience is necessary but there’s plenty of experience to be had.

Keeping in touch with our audience is important to us. We’re here to reflect who you are, challenge how you think and surprise you with what you see. Every year, we travel around the country to meet as many people as possible to tell them about what we do. Our series of one-day pop-up events, held throughout the year, is the perfect opportunity for you to learn new skills, while developing a clearer understanding about how we work in the context of the wider industry. It’s also a chance to get the inside track on what opportunities are coming up at 4Skills.
