BBC Wales Mentoring Programme

I’m delighted to launch the BBC’s First Steps mentoring project for future apprenticeship candidates. Do you know a young person with a passion for media and broadcasting? Do you think they would benefit from some mentoring by production teams at the BBC?
BBC Wales is offering mentoring support and guidance, for up to 15 young people in Wales, with the aim of helping them to do better with the application process for the BBC’s Digital Journalism Apprenticeships when they launch on January 7th, 2019 next year.
It can be really difficult to apply for one of our apprenticeships and we appreciate that. The online questions, online assessments and application to a deadline, can all be a tough process to get through. So First Steps is here to give a little bit of help to talented potential candidates. We are not looking for your A star students who can write applications well already. We are looking for talented young people with a passion for some kind of media, who have that creative spark but might need some help when it comes to dealing with formal applications.
We will accept up to 15 people this year with an interest in Journalism and they will come into the BBC here in Cardiff for one day in January, one in February and one in March. These days will involve mentoring, shadowing, employability training and potential masterclasses
Potential applicants can apply for the First Steps initiative. You can send their application straight to email@example.com, or you ask your Media or English teacher to introduce them and we'll email them directly to ask them.
Please note, all applicants must be 18 years old or older by September 2019.
