Why do we need a Series Producer Programme?
Making the stepup from Producer to Series Producer is a big leap. Recent research has highlighted the stifling shortage of Series Producers (SPs) right across the country. Creative Skillset aims to help solve this serious skills gap.
Finding the next generation of brilliant and diverse SPs will help the industry win new business and find the hit formats which will travel the world. This programme will develop creative showrunners who will become the cornerstones of UK TV and maintain our reputation as the world’s best Producers.
When does it start and how can I apply?
The programme is open for applications from 20 November 2017 to Midday, 8 January 2018. Please apply via this page, you will need to create a profile to view the Apply button.
Delegates will be selected in February and the Programme will commence in March.
Applications are encouraged from under-represented groups particularly those from BAME (Black, Asian or minority Ethnic) backgrounds or those with a disability and from delegates right across the UK.
This is not a competition. But there is a competitive selection process. If you have been selected for interview you will be informed mid January 2018. The interviews will take place in February 2018 in London with representatives from Channel 4 and the BBC. The training and first block of training will be in March 2018.
