Nurturing talent

Channel 4 has a remit to nurture talent throughout the UK.

4Talent is all about supporting people from different backgrounds and walks of life to build great futures in the media industry. We do this through a range of opportunities such as our Production Training Scheme, apprenticeship programme, work experience and our event series New Material.

New Material offers industry insights and networking opportunities in different cities across the UK to people who are looking to find out about the media industry, the skills needed for jobs in media and what opportunities are in their area. To find out more, please visit the 4Talent events page

We also collaborate with organisations to support the UK’s creative economy skills base, including the National Film and Television School and Screen Skills. We also partner with higher education institutions across the UK to support the talent pipeline, including De Montfort University and the University of Leeds. We also run dedicated new talent strands, including the Northern Writers’ Award, which provides training for two new writers from the North of England.

You can find out more on the 4Talent website.
