The Y Academy has been around for over 10 years and is South Africa’s most sought-after radio training programme.

Since 2018, YFM began accepting an intake of 10 interns for nine months  (April to December). Following the success of the last two years, the Y Academy will once again accept 10 interns this year.

Each intern will be rotated in the station’s various departments as they learn what goes into the running of a successful commercial radio station. After learning from the station’s staff, guest lecturers and the Y Academy Trainers, the interns will be fully-equipped to tackle the broadcast-radio industry as junior professionals.

At the end of the 9-month programme, the interns are awarded a certificate and, over time, many receive employment opportunities within the station.

Applications are now open (APPLY HERE) and will close on 31 January 2020, at 23:59. 

Shortlisted candidates will be contacted by the 28th of February 2020.
