Welcome to our Extend website, a dedicated source of information about the BBC’s work placement scheme for disabled people.
Extend is now closed for applications for 2013, but here is some information about the scheme should you choose to apply next year.
Placements are expected to start in February and run for six months. Please visit the How To Apply page for a full list of this year's opportunities at the BBC (which are now closed) and follow @BBCTrainees on Twitter for the latest news and updates. You can also get information on Access to Work which provides advice and practical support to disabled people for the workplace.
On our site you'll find a range of personal stories from recent participants from both earlier this year and the previous year's scheme. They have shared their Extend experiences and what inspired them to apply for a placement as well as what they found interesting and how taking part has affected them.
If you were not able to apply for the scheme this year, we are hoping to launch another Extend scheme in 2014. If you wish to join the 2014-15 Extend email distribution list please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
