Could you be the next Apprentice?
Could you be an apprentice digital journalist?
The BBC are looking for creative, passionate, resilient, digitally savvy, story-tellers, with an interest in their communities and the world around them.
If you’re successful, the BBC will give you the training and experience you need to compete for job in the BBC or wider broadcasting industry after your 18-month apprenticeships ends. In return they want you to bring your knowledge and talents of how we can better tell stories in a digital world. We need to learn new ways of engaging with our audiences and new ways of tapping into our audiences’ experiences and concerns. You can teach the BBC that.
To qualify you’ll need to be at least 18-years-old, a non-graduate and passionately into your news. Do you read a newspaper every day? Do you already blog or work as a citizen journalist, or do you already work in print journalism and want to add BBC News to your CV? If so, this could be your starting block in BBC News.
The Scheme opens for applications on Friday 13 March 2015. You can find out more about the Digital Journalist Apprentices here, and also follow @bbctrainees for updates on the scheme during the application month (March 13 – April 13).
