Nurturing talent

Channel 4 has a remit to nurture talent throughout the UK. We do this through relationships with higher education institutions, dedicated outreach programmes, work experience and apprenticeships, events and initiatives.

4Talent is all about supporting people from different backgrounds and walks of life to build great futures in the media industry, through many different work experience and apprenticeship programmes, events and other initiatives.  

Our C4 Pop-Ups provide access to training and information on getting into the industry via dedicated outreach days across the UK. You can find out more on our 4Talent website.  

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

Our production training scheme provides access to the industry and experience for young people across the UK.
