Quotes

David Holdsworth, Controller of English Regions, says: "The BBC wants to attract a diverse range of people to its workforce and the apprenticeship scheme is about giving opportunities to those who perhaps don't have academic qualifications or who have previously thought that the BBC was not for them. Enthusiasm, attitude and creativity are equally as important and are exactly what we will be looking for in our apprentices."
Isla MacLennan, Acting Principal Teacher for Pupil Support at St Margaret's Academy, Livingston , adds : "The Skills Studios in London provided an excellent experience for our students and gave them additional knowledge and confidence for when they move onto the working world or further education. Having a Skills Studios in Livingston will be a fantastic facility for the local community and I am sure that schools in and around the area will benefit hugely from visiting this centre.”"
One World Media director Clothilde Redfern said: "2014 saw our highest number of entries yet - more than 300 submissions from all over the world - a testament to the high regard the media industry has for our awards."
Roger Goss, Patient Concern co-director, said: "Has somebody lost their mind over this?"
