The nine-week traineeships will teach basic digital skills, such as creating simple websites and short videos for the web and will include training from the BBC Academy.
The scheme is a partnership between the BBC, Department for Work and Pensions and Skills Funding Agency and is designed to help get young people ready for work, providing them with employability skills and a work placement.
The BBC Make it Digital Traineeship is due to start this summer and will be a part of the BBC’s ‘Make it Digital’ initiative, which it will unveil in full later this month.
“We’ve already hit our target of having apprentices make up one per cent of our workforce. I’m immensely proud of that, but we need to keep on showing leadership, and keep on bringing people together in a way which only the BBC can,” said BBC director general, Tony Hall.
“Our new Make it Digital Traineeship is a hugely ambitious partnership, one we hope will unlock Britain’s digital potential and create genuinely life-changing opportunities for young people.”
