Applications are now open for RAMP - the Radio Academy’s Mentoring Programme


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

Applications from all disciplines are encouraged 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.
