What work will I do?
Over the last three years, the BBC Scotland Apprenticeship scheme has provided on-the-job training alongside a study programme. Hosted by BBC production departments, with the formal training delivered in a collaborative way with Skillset Scotland, Glasgow Kelvin College (formerly John Wheatley College) and BBC Scotland, the apprenticeship has led to a Creative and Digital Media Apprenticeship Level 3 qualification.
The scheme, specifically aimed at people who want to gain a qualification whilst working rather than through the traditional university-based route, is an opportunity to kick-start a career in the media.
"2014 is going to be a huge year for Scotland and the UK, across sport, culture and politics,” says Sharon Mair, Project Executive Commonwealth Games 2014. “The BBC will be at the heart of this as the Domestic Rights Holder for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. We are looking for people with enthusiasm and energy to help deliver outstanding content to our audience in this important year."
The BBC Scotland Apprenticeship provides an opportunity to people who may never have thought the BBC was for them.
