The BBC's Audio and Music Factual department launched a new scheme last year offering three 4-week work placements a year. Successful candidates get to spend a month on the Radio 4 daily consumer affairs magazine "You and Yours" with the aim of making one feature for broadcast and producing at least one live item for broadcast. This is a golden opportunity to work in network radio and impress a potential future employer.
An advertisment has just appeared on the BBC website for the next placement which begins in mid-May (although there is some flexibility over exact dates). The closing date for applications is 14th March 2010. Any students who want to apply should start by listening intently to "You and Yours." When you have done that I encourage you to follow this link
