Channel 4 looking for N&Rs indies for 2021 Production Training Scheme

Last month, Channel 4 launched 4Skills – their major new commitment to skills, training and development in the creative industries; focused on attracting and developing diverse talent into the sector.

As part of this initiative, they will be relaunching their flagship Production Training Scheme, with the aim of having a new cohort of trainees beginning their 12 month placements with indies in Spring 2021.

For this next edition of the Scheme Channel 4 is focused primarily on indies in the Nations and Regions and is now looking for applications from companies keen to take a trainee on.

Channel 4 will provide up to 50% of the trainee’s salary costs, with the remainder to be covered by the employer, including NI and pension contributions. Channel 4 will lead on the promotion and recruitment, as well as providing bespoke training and support throughout the duration of the scheme.
