BARNSLEY’S bright young sparks had the chance to attend a Channel 4 industry day at Barnsley Civic.

The event, called 4Talent, was aimed at 16 to 25-year-olds interested in working in creative industries.

Participants were taught how to sell themselves to potential employers and given advice about how to use social media to promote their profiles.

They were also taught how to frame, light and shoot work for their portfolio.

Diane Herbet, Channel 4’s director of human resources, said: “At Channel 4 we know that good ideas can come from anywhere.

She added: “The creative industries have huge potential to provide growth and employment, and we want to make sure that nobody is excluded from that.”
