Talent and skills development is embedded in Frequency’s ethos. During each festival we create paid internship opportunities for recent graduates to engage directly with industry in order to develop their skills and employability. This benefits both employers and interns by increasing workforce capacity and developing emerging talent and skills in the creative industries.

RADAR is a creative graduate accelerator scheme devised by Threshold Studios in collaboration with the University of Lincoln, offering paid internship placements and mentorship for creative graduates looking for a head start after University.


RADAR Creative Graduate Accelerator Scheme is open to University of Lincoln College of Arts graduates from within the last three years.

Past participants in the RADAR scheme have gone onto a range of exciting careers such as creative advertising, web development, participatory arts, graphic design, as well as post-graduate study.

“Not only do you receive a great work opportunity but the support that you get alongside this for your personal development is amazing. The team are genuinely interested in you as a person and helping you on your way to the big, scary world of post-University work.” – Emma Dawson, RADAR Intern

We are now looking to open dialogue with educational institutions about schemes to boost employability and encourage graduate retention by connecting graduates with opportunities with SMEs in the creative and cultural sectors.

“We value our partnership with Threshold Studios immensely for their commitment to the talent development of our students, staff and graduates in particular. We’ve been absolutely delighted to work with them to develop the RADAR scheme, a bespoke internship and mentorship programme for those new graduates seeking distinctive paid and supported opportunities in the creative arts, with a high success rate for employment in the media and cultural sector.” – Dr Sarah Barrow, Head of School of Film and Media, University of Lincoln
