The JTS is highly competitive and aimed at inexperienced journalists who are good writers with a nose for a story. At the end of the year, they should be capable of applying for jobs as qualified broadcast journalists.
The JTS was set up in 2007 with a specific remit to target people from a wide range of backgrounds and those who might not have thought the broadcast media was for them. 
There is no age limit and the scheme welcomes career-changers as much as younger applicants. 
There are 15 fully paid placements each year. After an initial course at the BBC College of Journalism, trainees move on to the BBC newsrooms where they spend time in television, local radio and online.
The JTS has bases around the UK - in Belfast, Cardiff and Glasgow  - and across the English regions, from Plymouth to Newcastle. Some work in news, others in sport; one works in politics as the 'Gareth Butler Trainee', in memory of the late Gareth Butler
While there's no guarantee of a job at the end of the scheme, the scheme's alumni are now working across the BBC - from Newsnight to BBC Humberside, from the World Service to Newsround.
