Learning Waves announces details for BBC Radio Ulster Partnership.
Learning Waves Skillnet is delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with BBC Radio Ulster. The process of developing this partnership began in 2014 when Teresa Hanratty, Project Manager, Learning Waves Skillnet and Jackie Neill, Station Manager, BBC Radio Ulster met following a PPI meeting. The seeds of the idea were sown and following a number of meetings, the partnership was agreed by the board of Learning Waves Skillnet and BBC Radio Ulster in March 2016. The partnership consists of 4 main areas :

Successful candidates will observe how the BBC production team puts programmes together such as The Stephen Nolan Show, Proms in the Park and many more.

- Opportunities for BBC staff to train with Learning Waves : BBC staff can access training programmes being offered by Learning Waves where places are available and courses are suitable. This will be agreed with the Learning Waves Project Manager and Station Manager in BBC Radio Ulster.
