•          You will learn how to create great content for BBC programmes across TV, radio, digital, online and social media.

•          You will train and work alongside top Editors and journalists across different parts of BBC Wales

•          You must have a passion for writing.

This is a scheme aimed at non-graduates. But you need to have at least 5 GCSEs with Maths and English at a C or above (or equivalent) or Grades 9 to 4. In Scotland you need to have five National 5’s, Grades A to C including Maths and English.
