Invest in your future workforce – help the region’s school children to achieve.

Wire FM are doing something different – and we need your help. We are asking local businesses to get involved with a unique project that aims to improve young people’s knowledge of the working environment across the area. This will result in a better qualified pool of young people leaving school and therefore a stronger potential workforce for businesses to choose from.

The Wire FM Scholarship Programme will engage with 9-16 year olds from our local schools, to produce interactive podcasts on local companies, helping them to learn and revise for their exams and gain a better understanding about the world of work.

The Wire FM Scholarship Programme asks your business to get involved to help us deliver this unique programme into schools across the region. In return, apart from the obvious great feeling of doing a good turn, your business will benefit from being promoted on Wire FM and our other sister stations in the area.Your company will also feature in our business engagement projects with local schools and colleges and you will also benefit from online/social media support.

To get involved, or for further information please contact Stuart Heaton at stuart.heaton@utvmedia.co.uk
