GCAP assist in Skillset pilot

Skillset has today earmarked £200,000 worth of funding to train thirty-six people from the South East of England who either volunteer or are junior members of staff to develop within the Radio industry with the help of Government funded agency SEEDA.

The project, which is a pilot scheme has been called ‘The route into Radio’ and will be taught by Skillset with the backing of project co-coordinators GCAP.

A total of eighteen Radio Stations owned by GCAP, BBC and community stations have signed up to the pilot which will see the interns take a three-month placement and existing radio professionals working as mentors. Trainees will also be able to work towards a City and Guilds Qualification.

This is the first project of it’s kind and Bob Hoad, Community Relations Director at GCap and Route into Radio Project Co-ordinator, told radiotoday.co.uk: "There is a real need to develop the talent we have within our industry to make them the future stars of radio — at the moment recruitment is occurring by default rather than development."

Anyone in the South East wishing to apply should [link=http://www.skillset.org/radio/routeintoradio/]click here[/link] . The closing date for Surrey and Sussex applications will be the end of this month, followed by Kent in August 2008 and Hampshire in December 2008.
