Working in broadcasting and journalism with Level 2 qualifications such as BTECs or GCSEs
It can be hard to break into broadcasting and journalism. People applying for jobs like the ones below may have a degree.
First jobs are often low paid and there is a lot of competition. If you are hoping to get into the industry with just GCSEs or similar, look for trainee schemes and apprenticeships. People often volunteer to gain experience. You might need to do another job to support you while you get started.
