2020 Grierson DocLab training programme open for applications

The 2022 Grierson DocLab training programme is now in its 10th year and is currently open for applications.

The scheme supports 12 successful applicants aged 18-25 & based in the UK taking their first steps in factual TV/documentary jobs. They’re looking for applicants who are keen to learn about the different behind the scenes roles in the industry, from editorial to production management – as well as people who have fresh perspectives and ideas on what they can contribute to the sector.

They especially welcome applications from those currently under-represented in the industry (those from an ethnic minority background, from the LGBTQ+ community, those with a disability, people from a lower socio-economic background, from outside London and more). 

Trainees will get intensive training, an industry mentor match, a bursary-supported work placement, support with continuing professional development, a pass to Sheffield Doc/Fest, CV help and much more.

The deadline for applications is Fri, 11 Feb at 5pm and you can get in touch to know more about accessibility requirements and reasonable adjustments for applying.

There is also a webinar on Weds, 26 Jan with five of our recent alumni who will answer questions about their experience of the scheme.

You can find more info on the website or on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn.
