'Rad' information events

Wednesday 12th December

Ever thought about working in TV but not sure how to get started? 'Rad' is TRC's new training programme for diverse talent looking to start a career in the television industry. The traineeship is aimed at groups who are typically under-represented in the TV industry: those either with a disability, from black, Asian or ethnic minority communities or from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Come along to our information events to find out more about a career in TV with Rad.

Evening: Come along to TRC's offices in Glasgow City Centre from 6-7pm to hear more about working as a TV Researcher and the skills rad can equip you with. Reserve your free place now here. 

Morning: We'll also be at Glasgow Women's Library from 10.30 - 12:30 on the 12th December. Come along for a chat about rad over a hot drink, get to know more about the programme and ask any questions you might have about a career in television. Reserve your free place here.
