The BBC has announced the second edition of its Open Music training scheme, which will offer 30 successful applicants hands-on experience, masterclasses and mentoring in the fields of radio production, sound engineering, presenting and digital content production in classical music.

“We’re always on the lookout for future talent at the BBC and as we call for applications for Open Music 2023, I’m so pleased we’ll be building on last year’s amazingly successful cohort”, says BBC Radio 3 Controller Sam Jackson. “We’re looking for people with an undeniable spark of creativity, who feel that what they offer can help us to create truly special and memorable radio”.

“The BBC may just be the place for you”, he adds. “We are one of the biggest media organisations in the world, with a staggering reach, and we commission more new music than anyone in the UK. If you have creative ideas and want tailored mentoring and inspiring career experience as part of this unique organisation, whatever your ideas, age, talent or background, we want you to be part of our story – so, please do put in an application!”

The scheme will run from September 2023 to September 2024, culminating in a BBC Proms programme created by this year’s trainees.
