Posted by & filed under Campaigns.

An open letter requesting information any of our members may have
regarding Radio training information. Further information available HERE.
Please send any information to

Dear Radio Skills Council

Further to the Skillset update I’d be grateful if you
could respond to the following:

1. To inform our work in developing a range of professional short
courses that count towards postgraduate qualifications – please
send details of:

o        any radio training providers that you’re aware of – this
could include existing in-house training schemes.

o        subject areas where training is most needed – sales,
leadership and management, business development have already been

2. Train to Gain – invitation to meet with skills broker to find out
about training and potential funding:

o        Skillset is working with Train to Gain to support development
of the service and to highlight the benefits it can offer to the
creative media industries.  If you would like to find out more about the
service and how it might support your business please let me know and
we’ll set up a visit.  A visit would involve Skillset together with a
Train to Gain Skills broker spending an hour or so at your company to
discuss your skills development needs and the broker would then source
suitable training and explore potential funding to support the cost of
that training.  These initial visits will provide valuable case studies
to inform further development of Train to Gain as a service.  The
attached briefing paper (circulated at the meeting) explains further.

3. Progression routes into and through the industry

o        Julie Hadwin is working on a progression map of routes into and
through the industry.  She would like to add a few anecdotes to
illustrate real-life career experiences.  Please could you confirm that
you’re happy for me to pass your contact details on to Julie so that she
can follow this up.
