All too often in the radio industry, the actual people who do the work are offered very little opportunity for training. If you are a freelancer, the opportunities can be even more limited.
Creative Skillset – the media skills funding provider have just announced training funds of up to £1500 for radio skills training for eligible freelancers.
Funding is available for freelancers to “spend on the craft, technical and business skills training the industry needs”.
To be eligible:
You need to have at least three production credits on your CV gained within the last three years. You also need to demonstrate that the training you chose is in the priority area of either craft and technical, or business skills and is delivered by a recognised training provider or high calibre industry professional working in their specialist field.
If you are a freelancer with at least 3 professional radio credits on your CV, this could be a great opportunity to enhance your skills.
