The recipient of the 2018 SCA Graduation Internship award has been announced today. For the third year, one talented graduate from the Australian Film Television and Radio School’s flagship Graduate Diploma of Radio course has been selected and will be hosted in a special internship with Southern Cross Austereo (SCA). This year's winner is Katie Fleming.
SCA’s Head of Regional Content Mickey Maher says the award aims to offer real hands on experience, working within one of the biggest media companies in the country.
“We are thrilled and honoured to again be able to continue to offer an AFTRS student this opportunity,” says Mickey.
“SCA is committed to recruiting and developing people who have the potential to be the best in their field and this program is a great foundation to kick start their future careers in the industry.”
The award will include six weeks, full-time, paid employment for Katie at a regional radio station owned by SCA.
AFTRS Acting head of Radio Jess Campanaro says the award reflects the School’s close ties with SCA over many years.
“SCA offers a wonderful career path for radio professionals, and is the largest commercial radio employer of AFTRS Radio graduates,” says Jess.
“AFTRS is pleased to have this award available for our most talented graduands and feel it further strengthens our commitment to provide industry ready radio professionals right across the country.”
Mickey Maher says the hope is that the internship opportunity does lead to employment.
