The Writers' Academy is now in its third year and is a fast track to a TV writing career. Those snobbish about soap need not apply. Below are some of the details but for a full application and information, follow the link and click 'Current Jobs', and do a Search (phew, got that?). Also, you can read about Abi Brown's successful experience, here (free reg required).
"The training you receive from BBC Drama’s Writers Academy will give you the specific skills required to write for some of the BBC’s most popular format series such as Doctors, EastEnders, Holby City and Casualty, and a springboard to write across all the BBC’s drama output.
Potential writers will have already had at least one film, television or radio drama script produced, or one theatre piece performed professionally, or will be graduates of Skillset Approved screenwriting courses.
The Writers Academy will train up to 8 writers a year, over a period of twelve months."
