Unemployed young people can benefit from the BBC’s new Make It Digital traineeship.
From today, 5,000 opportunities will be available in 60 locations across the UK to enhance young people’s digital and employability skills.
Unemployed people aged 16 to 24 year olds and who have fewer than two A Levels can register their interest through their local Jobcentre Plus.
BBC Three controller Damian Kavanagh fielded harsh criticism from audience and panel alike at the RTS Futures Summer Party.
"Is TV out of touch?" asked former CBBC presenter Kirsten O’Brien, who chaired the event, "is it relevant for 16 to 34 year olds?"
With the BBC’s youth brand soon set to relinquish its linear channel, Kavanagh was told that young people were bearing the brunt of difficult BBC cuts.
