In this video, Bal Samra, Commercial Director at the BBC, talks about his organisation’s commitment to apprenticeships as a means of developing their workforce, as well as their experience of working with Pearson to increase their apprenticeship numbers.

The BBC Apprenticeship scheme is enabling us to attract a diverse pool of talent. We currently have 37 apprentices and our ambition is to move that to 170, 1% of the workforce.
If we can develop this scheme and it results in an accreditation, it is an amazing place to be and Pearson has been central to it.
