Education is a key public service purpose of Channel 4. The Education department aims to help 14-19 year old UK teenagers to understand the world they live in and learn life-skills to achieve their personal potential. We commission high-impact education programmes across a variety of Channel 4 platforms, including C4, E4, T4 and Online. Recent success has included the double Emmy-award winning Battlefront which gives young people the skills to campaign around subjects as diverse as autism and unemployment, and the BAFTA winning Privates game, tackling STDs in an innovative and irreverent way.
In 2012, The Education team will be integrating further with established Channel 4 brands, increasing visibility of all projects and continuing to build on its reputation of innovation. These include projects in careers, fashion, politics, comedy and more.
Education will continue supporting creative diversity, across platforms, with new and established companies from across the country.
We are always looking for great stories, formats and innovations that best reflect and represent UK teenagers and aim to offer life skills and non-curriculum education. If you have something we should hear about, get in touch.
