Why Stockton Riverside College?
Graded Good by Ofsted with ‘Outstanding’ delivery of apprenticeships, our wealth of experience in delivering high quality business solutions, means we are well placed to support you in delivering traineeships to match your business objectives.
Stockton broadcaster Ignition Radio has been working in partnership with Stockton Riverside College to help budding journalists, presenters and editors to develop industry-relevant skills.
Offering a 12-week traineeship, station manager Tony Beards said: “This proved a good way of giving young people an insight into the organisation before taking on the commitment of an apprenticeship.”
For the charity organisation which is run by a team of volunteers, Tony said the trainees proved an asset to the workforce. Not only did they bring fresh ideas but they were also able to take on real projects and assist with the day-to-day running of the community station.
“The Traineeship was fantastic,” said Tony. With several trainees moving on to further industry relevant training, other courses or employment, the station hopes to repeat the success with plans in place to launch a second traineeship.
