BBC local radio training scheme launched
The BBC is offering 45 local apprenticeships in its radio stations across the UK as part of Tony Hall’s pledge to open up the BBC to people from a wide range of backgrounds.
Successful candidates will start their jobs in September, working as Apprentice Broadcast Assistants in England and the Channel Islands, and Apprentice Content Assistants in Wales, Scotland and N Ireland.
The corporation is looking for non-graduates aged 18 and over who will earn whilst learning, getting Gold standard training from the BBC Academy. Positions are available at one of the 39 local radio stations across England and the Channel Islands or in one of the six Nations’ radio stations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Candidates will qualify after 15 months with a Level 3 apprenticeship in Journalism and work for the BBC.
BBC Director General Tony Hall sayd: “I want to build a ladder of opportunity for the talented. I want to open up the BBC to more people – to people from every part of the country – to people from a greater variety of backgrounds.”
