Students will receive training in broadcast journalism, content creation, mobile journalism and much more

Ten journalism graduates will have the opportunity to be placed in one of Ireland's Independent radio stations as part of the Learning Waves ‘Journalism Graduate Programme’ launched today.

Students will be assigned a mentor who will oversee a training programme to include the fundamentals of broadcast journalism, content creation, storytelling for radio, audio production, media literacy, broadcast law, voice training, mobile journalism, leadership skills and personal development.

The paid internship, which runs for a period of five months, aims to provide students with the skills and knowledge to better understand traditional and new media communication sources, including radio, online and mobile platforms.

Teresa Hanratty, Project Manager of Learning Waves Skillnet, the training body for the Independent Commercial Radio Sector in Ireland said, "The Programme was piloted in 2019 with five students and we’re thrilled that the initiative is catering for ten students this year.

"Developing new talent for the radio sector is of huge importance to the future proofing of the independent radio sector. Training is a key investment by stations and Learning Waves has been working closely with the sector to create new and innovative ways in the learning and development of talent. The Journalism Graduate Programme is one such initiative.”

Details of the Student Graduate Programme and the application process can be found at www.learningwaves.ie

Closing date for applications is May 21st, 2021
