National Apprenticeship Week BBC

National Apprenticeship Week with BBC

Want to know more about the exciting apprenticeship opportunities at BBC?

This broadcast focuses on Becky and Susan’s journey as apprentices and why they chose an apprenticeship instead of continuing in full time education. The theme for this broadcast was focused on the apprentice experience to inspire students in school and college to look at this route into the workplace.

The live chat is always open next to the video player so feel free to leave us a question or comment and we’ll get it forwarded to the team from BBC.

  • Becky Butler

    Broadcast Engineering Apprentice, BBC

    I joined the BBC at the end of September, so I’m in my first year out of three as it’s a degree apprenticeship. I came here straight after doing my A Levels in Maths, Physics and IT. I’m originally from the Black Country (West Midlands) but I’ve now moved to Cardiff for the job.

    I’m currently on placement in the Technology department, where my days vary quite a lot. I shadow engineers, fix things in the workshop, spend time in other departments and more. When I’m at University, I study Broadcast Engineering.

  • Susan Machin

    Broadcast Engineering Apprentice, BBC

    I’m currently in my first year of a three year degree apprenticeship with the BBC. My time is split between university study periods and work placements with various design and engineering departments throughout BBC and my base is Salford. I joined the apprenticeship after working full time for over three years in an admin role. I attended college for a year after high school, but found the continuation of full time study wasn’t for me so looked to working full time.

    After 3 years I decided I wanted to continue my studies so I enrolled onto an Access to Higher Education course, whilst working part-time which was to be my pathway into university, however I was lucky enough to land a place onto this apprenticeship which allows me to not only further my education but to also work in a real-time working environment, which I have already had a taste for and know I enjoy.
