A great chance to spend a day with Channel 4 and learn the practical skills required to work in this industry.

If your successful we’ll also support you with travel, accommodation and food costs if you need help to get to our offices in London.

Channel 4 Apprenticeships help bright young people to get great experience in the industry, get an NVQ Level 3 or 4 qualification and get paid at the same time. No experience is required to apply for this programme, you just need to love TV and what we do, and have a genuine passion for building a career in the area you apply to.
In 2018 we will be offering roles in a number of departments including Commissioning, Research, Corporate Relations, Press, Sales and 4Creative.
Production Training Scheme
So, as you’ll know from doing your research, Channel 4 is a broadcaster and we don’t make any of our own programmes. Instead we commission them from our network of independent production companies based across the UK.
A healthy independent production sector is vital for a healthy Channel 4, so each year we support 12 entry level trainees to work across at indies across the UK, developing their skills to work in production as a paid researcher, production co-ordinator or technical assistant. We’ll be accepting applications for this programme in May, with roles beginning in September.
