A total of 15 selected candidates will gain skills and experience as well as receive professional training at the channel's broadcast studios in Abu Dhabi.
Sky News Arabia (SNA) will be providing budding journalists, producers and directors with an opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills at the organisation, as part of their annual graduate internship programme.
The programme which is aimed at Arabic-speaking graduates or students seeking to embark on a career in media has welcomed 15 applicants this year.
The programme kicks off on July 21, 2019, and will last for 11 weeks.
For three weeks, the candidates will build their knowledge in the classroom while the remaining eight weeks will see them put their skills into daily practice.
This year, the programme will include a new focus on creating media content with an emphasis on digital skills. This coincides with the recent announcement of the channels biggest enhancement since its 2012 launch.
Located in Abu Dhabi, the 15 selected candidates will gain skills and experience as well as receive professional training at the state-of-the-art broadcast studios through practical and theory-based training.
Upon completion of the program, Sky News Arabia will then offer internship placements to the best candidates.
Commenting on the programme, Mahra Al Yaqoobi, Learning & Development Manager, Sky News Arabia, said: Sky News Arabia is committed to supporting young journalists who want to take their first steps in this industry. With so many talented young people studying in this region, the Sky News Arabia Program is an excellent platform to build their knowledge and skills and give them exposure to a real-life newsroom.
