The Radio Academy has opened applications for the first pan-industry mentoring scheme for people in the UK radio and audio sector. On 15 September, this webinar allowed interested parties to ask questions of RAMP Programme Director Hannah Corneck, and Radio Academy Managing Director Sam Bailey.
RAMP – The Radio Academy Mentoring Programme – supported by Broadcast Bionics, and is designed for mid-career professionals who are ready to take a significant step in their careers. Applications are welcome from people working in all disciplines including production, presentation, journalism, technology, craft, commercial and support roles, and RAMP is open to anyone with a minimum of five years’ professional experience.
A total of twenty mentoring places will be available, and mentees will be carefully matched with an industry leader that suits their challenge, for six mentoring sessions taking place monthly from January next year. Successful applicants will also form a 2021 cohort network, with peer-to-peer feedback, access to group seminars, and networking events designed to boost confidence, enhance skills, and provide ongoing support.
The webinar included guest Mentor Rebecca Frank (Content Director, KISS Network) and guest Mentee Alice Rothwell (Senior Producer, BBC Sesh)
