Channel 4 has training needs that extend beyond the confines of its London headquarters and covers far more than its 800 staff. It is estimated that around £ 500,000 a year is spent on internal training, leaving £ 1.5 million to go to outside production companies. Channel 4 has an annual personal review process. Staff sit down with their managers and draw up personal development plans. Managers work out employees' training needs and then prioritise these according to how closely they tie in with corporate objectives.
