BBC have once again launched their exciting Get In Schemes for 2017. The schemes aim to provide aspiring media employees training and support and are a fantastic step into the industry.
The BBC is one of the biggest international names for radio, television and online content. The schemes are aimed at the next generation of talent. BBC want people with fresh ideas and who will ultimately want a career in the industry.
Here is a break-down of the schemes on offer:
Production Apprentice Scheme
The Production Apprentice Scheme is a 12-month scheme which combines placements in the workplace - embedded in our production teams across a wide range of TV, radio and online output - with college study and bespoke training from the BBC Academy.
Over the course of the year you will build a solid foundation of core production skills and also have the chance to specialise in one of three production areas:
- Production Management
- Craft Skills
A 12 month fixed-term contract paying £12,500 per year plus an additional allowance of £4,560 for those working in London. Training fees and all travel and accommodation expenses for training are covered.
The chance to work on a wide variety of programmes across TV, radio and online production. Gold-standard industry training delivered by the BBC Academy from specialists and senior BBC and freelance production staff.
And later this year, as BBC Three begins its moves into its exciting new home in BBC Birmingham, they will also be offering some apprentices a very special training opportunity, dedicated to working on BBC Three. If you are interested in applying for this you will be invited to state a preference on the application form.
Digital Journalist Apprenticeship
The news changes every day and now the way we get our news is changing too. From 4K TVs to hand-held devices, today's news is mobile, on demand and faster than ever.
- Can you take a story and make it go viral?
- Can you make the best of social media to reach new audiences?
- Can you listen to people and explain complex stories in a simple way?
If you've got what it takes to tell a story, put it out there, and reach people who don't normally consume the news, then BBC want to hear from you.
An amazing 22 month apprenticeship to train to be a Digital Journalist with the BBC - with a diploma in journalism accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) at the end of it.
You’ll learn how to create great content and programmes for TV, Radio, Digital, Online and social media. You will work on the latest pilots in digital mobile journalism. You'll train and work with BBC editors and staff. You’ll write, record, create and reach out to our audience.
