The Radio Academy Mentoring Programme

Applications are now closed for the Radio Academy’s 2023 Mentoring Programme (RAMP). Applicants will hear from us in the coming weeks.

RAMP is our mentoring scheme for mid-career radio and audio professionals based in the UK, with a minimum of five years’ experience and ready to take a significant step in their career.

It is available to people working in all disciplines including production, presentation, journalism, technology, craft, commercial and support roles.

Mentoring is a personal and professional development partnership in which someone shares their experience and knowledge with someone who wants to grow and progress.  It is a two-way confidential partnership of learning, dialogue, development and challenge.

The scheme runs for six months, during which time mentees will receive six hours of mentoring contact with an experienced industry figure. In addition, mentees will benefit from being part of a supportive cohort, experience peer-to-peer feedback, and have access to seminars and networking events designed to boost confidence, enhance skills and provide ongoing support.​

*Please note, you do not need to be a member at the time of applying to the scheme. However, if you are selected, we would expect you to become a member by the time RAMP starts.

On 3 October, our Mentoring Director Hannah Corneck and MD Sam Bailey held a webinar with two of the 2022 RAMP cohort, to explain the scheme and answer questions.  Watch below:
