The BBC is offering 45 paid apprenticeships in local radio stations across the UK as part of a pledge to open up the BBC to people from a wide range of backgrounds. Applications open on Monday 14 April 2014 and successful candidates will work and train as Apprentice Broadcast Assistants in local radio stations in England, Wales or Channel Islands and Apprentice Content Assistants in Scotland and N. Ireland.
We are looking for applicants who are:
- creative, resilient, hard-working and passionate about what they do, with a mature outlook.
- news aware, and interested in current affairs.
- knowledgeable about their local area and interested in local news.
Other events will be held elsewhere in the UK later in May.
Please note that we WILL NOT be discussing any other BBC apprenticeship schemes at this session as we have separate events planned for these later in the season.
When & Where
The Academy puts training and development at the heart of the BBC and also works with the wider broadcast industry, equipping people with skills they need for a lifetime of employability in the ever-changing media landscape.
The Academy focuses on providing a portfolio of high-quality training and development. This includes face-to-face courses, online programmes and a variety of development initiatives, and ensures that training is relevant and effective for both the individual and the business.
As well as training our own staff, we have a remit under the terms of the BBC's Charter Agreement to train the wider industry. We aim to share as much of our training as possible with the wider UK broadcasting industry for free. We also offer some of our courses on a commercial basis, both within the UK and abroad.
