Get In: Local Apprenticeship Scheme events

The BBC Local Apprenticeship Scheme (LAS) is open for applications until 12 May 2014, and we’re running #BBCGetIn events around the country to help people find out more.

Over 40 local apprenticeships will be on offer at BBC local radio stations across the UK as part of the scheme, which is backed by Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens and follows director-general Tony Hall’s pledge to open up the BBC to people from the broadest possible range of backgrounds. 

Successful applicants will begin their 15-month contracts in September and work as apprentice broadcast assistants (in England and the Channel Islands) and apprentice content assistants (in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland).

The scheme is open to non-graduates and will lead to a Level 3 apprenticeship in Broadcast Journalism thanks to training from the BBC Academy and a partner college.  

You can find out more about the LAS on the BBC Careers Hub, or if you’re in the area why not come along to one of our local Get In events? There'll be the chance to meet radio staff and the team behind our newest and biggest apprenticeship scheme.
