Yet another group of hugely talented young people have just completed their Modern Apprenticeship with BBC Scotland in partnership with Glasgow Kelvin College and Skills Development Scotland, and progressed to a wide variety of exciting options in the film, TV and broadcasting industry!
This group has been the seventh of these very successful programmes which identify, cultivate and develop future talent.
The programme sees the apprentices spending two days per month at Glasgow Kelvin College learning many of the technical and vocational skills they might require, as well as personal development and core skills. The remainder of their time is spent on work placement within the exciting film, media and TV production industry in Glasgow where students rotate their work experience through all the genres at BBC Scotland in digital, radio and television.
This last year’s successful learners celebrated their achievements at a presentation event at BBC Scotland on Pacific Quay. The apprenticeship programme has provided a springboard to careers in production and journalism, with some of the young students going onto degrees in higher education and others moving onto further work at BBC Scotland, BBC Alba or other media production organisations.
All the apprentices will be on the BBC Scotland Runners Pool for 12 months.
Skills Development Scotland support the certification of the Modern Apprenticeship in Creative & Digital Media Skills.
This year’s talented BBC Apprentice graduates are pictured here at Pacific Quay.
