The BBC Radio Journalism Apprenticeship Scheme has opened up for applicants hoping for a career in speech radio at the corporation.
The scheme has six positions available for a paid apprenticeship in BBC Radio Production, and is encouraging anyone who has a passion for speech radio to apply.
The BBC Radio Journalism Apprenticeship Scheme combines training and study at Lambeth College in London with work placements in the radio production teams, offering training in every aspect of radio journalism, from how to create accurate, clear, and balanced reports, to how to write for radio, the web, and social media.
The apprenticeship and work placements will be for 2 years, starting this September (2013) and ending in September 2015.
The experience gives all the skills and knowledge needed to gain an Advanced Apprenticeship in Journalism (Level 3) and an NCTJ diploma in BBC Radio Production.
