Applications for Business Degree Apprenticeship at the BBC Open Now



BBC Degree Apprenticeship

This is your opportunity to:

  • Gain an honours degree in Business Management and a Higher Apprenticeship in Leadership and Management
  • Be paid an annual salary of £17,015
  • Have your tuition fees paid by the BBC
  • Build a CV full of amazing work experience through working in one of the world’s most creative and innovative media organisations

We have 8 positions available for a paid Higher Apprenticeship in Leadership and Management based in London. This sponsored programme incorporating a Pearson College London BA Honours degree in Business Management is for two years at the BBC. The course starts at the end of September 2017 (with 2 weeks induction training from the 11th September) and ends September 2019.

As part of the two year programme, you’ll complete three work placements at the BBC, whilst also studying towards your degree. You will go to college 1 day a week and will be expected to study at home as well. Through this scheme, you’ll also build up an excellent CV which will put you in a great position to compete for jobs in the media industry once you graduate.


This will be an exciting but challenging opportunity which will require lots of hard work and commitment. You don’t need to have work experience but we are looking for people who can show the ability to work on their own initiative, have excellent written and verbal communication skills and the ability to work co-operatively as part of a team. Also essential are effective organisation and administrative skills and a keen eye for detail. You’ll have excellent numeracy skills, and an ability to work with spreadsheets and databases.

You’ll have a genuine interest in business and a passion to develop a career in business within the creative industries as well as enthusiasm for working at the BBC.

You will be highly motivated, innovative and self-driven with an ambition to succeed in these complex and specialist areas. We aim to develop you towards being business managers and leaders of the future.

In terms of academic qualifications, you’re likely to have five GCSEs Grade A* – C and studied A Levels / IB or a vocational qualification such as a BTEC. Don’t worry if you don’t have these, we are looking for creative, passionate people with great ideas, not necessarily people with academic qualifications. So don’t talk yourself out of this great opportunity. This Apprenticeship is for those who have not yet undertaken degree level education.
