Interested in applying to our rad Scotland traineeship but not sure if this might be the opportunity for you?

Join our lunchtime Zoom session on Thursday May 9th at 1pm to find out more about rad, what to expect from the traineeship and top tips for your application.

This webinar will give you the chance to hear about our alumni’s experiences on the programme and ask them any questions you may have about the roles.

rad Scotland is a paid 8-month TV traineeship aimed at those who are underrepresented in the TV industry: those who are either deaf, disabled and/or neurodivergent, from Black, Asian or minority ethnic communities or from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

Thanks to Screen Scotland’s continued support, rad Scotland is returning for a fifth edition this year.

Register your interest here if you would like to participate in this online event.
