About the Rise Up UTC Mentoring Programme

The Rise Up UTC Mentoring Programme is a UK-based scheme that supports 23 young women aged 16-18 years old in pursuing a career in the broadcast media technology industry.

Funded and supported by BT Sport, Discovery and ITV, the aim of the mentoring programme is to encourage these young women into the broadcast media technology industry – whether this is into related degrees, apprenticeships or straight into the industry.

Who are the Rise Up UTC mentors?

What makes this programme extra special is that the mentors will have all come from Rise’s annual industry mentoring programme, which has now supported over 70 women from across the sector.
