RIG launches Diversity Training Scheme
The Radio Independents Group (RIG) is committed to encouraging a diverse workforce in the independent radio production sector and to ensuring that radio in the UK reflects the full diversity of the population, in its programmes and in the people who make them.
As part of this commitment, RIGtrain is launching a development scheme for black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) groups and those who are disabled. The diversity scheme is being run by Training Specialists Quattrain in association with RIG companies. It is backed by Creative Skillset England and is designed to encourage those who want to improve their audio skills and support those wishing to develop their careers in radio.
The Scheme is in two parts - please follow the links for full details:
