Raise Your Game set for BBC event
Kick It Out’s latest Raise Your Game event is just days away and will see aspiring media professionals head to Media City in Salford, the home of the BBC.
The ‘Get Into Football Media’ event in Manchester, in partnership with BBC Sport, will provide a unique insight into the industry for the lucky attendees on Monday 23 November.
Kick It Out’s Education and Development Manager, Troy Townsend, said: “Our Raise Your Game series has provided hundreds of mentees with the opportunity of meeting some of the biggest names in football as they create their own pathway into the game.
“One thing we’ve noticed is the high quality of mentees that want to work in media, so our partnership with BBC Sport brings together one of the most high-profile sports news organisations in the world with aspiring journalists.
“With the series entering its fourth year, it was crucial that we expanded to offer new specialised avenues to support people looking to enter the industry.
“The Get Into Football Media conference builds upon our national and women’s conferences, giving us a really strong line up as we head into 2016.”
Keep an eye on social media this coming Monday (we’ll be using the #RYG once more) for updates from the day as those lucky attendees will be hearing from important figures at the BBC.
