Paras Production Training Scheme

Applications now open! We are looking for disabled people who want to start a career in television.

As part of our commitment to recruiting and promoting disabled talent in television, Channel 4 is launching the PARAS Production Training Scheme. Sixteen people will be given the opportunity to work for an independent production company during 2019-20.

This is a 12-month paid opportunity, working with an independent production company, which also includes industry training and support from ThinkBIGGER! This is an entry-level scheme aimed at people with no or limited industry experience.

This programme is aimed at disabled people, as disabled people are currently underrepresented in the media industry and this is something we want to change.

We have roles across companies that make sports, live and entertainment content, as well as placements in social media and graphic design teams.

Opportunities will be available across the UK, potential placements include London, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Cardiff and Glasgow.

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.

Placements this year will begin on 23rd September 2019.
