Overview

A Junior Content Producer (JCP) is responsible for developing and creating content that can be used across a variety of media including digital, social media, broadcast or in print. Working to the customer/client brief, they research, prepare and develop the media messaging to maximise audience engagement, capturing the strategy and objectives of the brand and needs of the customer they are representing. The content they create can be used as part of media, advertising and marketing campaigns. 

JCP’s collaborate with designers and developers, using authoring languages to create content for the World Wide Web, which may include video, images, text (or “copy”) and web pages and social media content, so enthusiasm for technology and creating great online experiences is a must.

JCP’s can work in advertising, marketing or digital agencies, or in interactive roles for broadcasters.

Our expectation is that all Apprentices should already possess English and Mathematics to a GCSE grade C/4 or equivalent. However, we will consider applicants without these grades subject to an initial assessment with one of the Apprenticeship Team.

Day Release, one day a week at HSDC for taught lessons and four days at your place of work for on the job training and learning with a monthly visit from your Apprenticeship Assessor. 

Content Creation can also be delivered as a fully work-based Apprenticeship depending on the area and volume of candidates wishing to undertake the course. 

Typical Course Duration: 15 months & 1-3 months End Point Assessment period.

Apprentices can be taught via classroom delivery, work-based learning/assessment, and vocational “on and off the job training”. This is always dependent on the course requirements, the preferences of the business and the wishes of the learner.

Workplace observation, test and professional discussion.

JCP’s may progress into Content Creation/Development roles at more senior levels across the industry, including with digital agencies, broadcasters and publishers.

Opportunities may exist to gain professional accreditation in your chosen field post completion of the qualification. Your Assessor will support you with information on gaining professional accreditation. 

As we work with Apprentices that are already employed, if you attend our day release programmes you will mix with a diverse range of businesses with Apprentices in the same sector.


There are great teachers here. This college has felt more like a university than a school, and it’s definitely lived up to that more grown-up feel.

My courses were all especially interesting, I thoroughly enjoyed all of them. All of my lecturers were extremely knowledgeable and I have learnt a lot from them.

College has been the best two years of my education. All my teachers were great and amazing, and I think they were the most helpful they could have been.
