Will this be a continuous search, ongoing in future years to come? It would be great to know whether opportunities such as this will be available for future generations who are, at present, undergraduates or postgraduates. Will the accessibility of this opportunity be a one off?

The Women and Politics Specialist Group (Political Studies Association) is working to improve women academic's representation in the media. Please contact us to liaise as to whether we can work together to improve our member's media skills. http://psawomenpolitics.wordpress.com

Hi R Hayden. The decision isn't mine. But I'm hoping that if this first media training day is a huge success, there will be more. So please help me spread the word to all the female experts you know. Many thanks.

Hi Claire. When do we find out of we were successful in getting a place? Or is it a case of if we don't hear we haven't got a place?

Hi Hayley
The BBC Academy was busy running another event in Manchester last week, so I haven't had an update yet.
As soon as I have any news I'll let you know.
Best wishes,
Claire

I'm delighted to say that over 2000 female experts applied for the free media training day that the BBC Academy is hosting in January. Good luck to everytone who's through to the next phase. And as there was such an unprecedented & overwhelming response to this first media training day, hopefully there will be more in the future. Happy Christmas everyone!
