Beats 1 anchor Julie Adenuga and BBC Radio 1Xtra presenter (and FADER columnist) Sian Anderson have been working together since they first started presenting on Rinse FM in 2010. Today, alongside their radio careers, the London-based duo have racked up plenty of experience in events, PR, and journalism between them—and now they want to share it all with you.
This week, Adenuga and Anderson are launching One True Calling in order to help British people aged 16 - 24 learn skills to prepare them for a career in the media. The name is tongue-in-cheek—as the pair put it in a press release, "We believe you have more than one true calling in life." As such, One True Calling will allow you to try your hand at a whole range of skills: "We will be holding four workshops for 40 people across April 2016, teaching you everything from journalism, PR, radio production, presenting, and more."
By the end of the course, Adenuga and Anderson will select keen and talented individuals to take their new skills further by completing work experience or producing content for different U.K. media platforms, including The FADER.
