RADAR: Creative Graduate Accelerator

“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, BA (Hons) Graphic Design, University of Lincoln


RADAR is an accelerator scheme devised in collaboration with the University of Lincoln for graduates looking for a head start after University. Through a paid internship, we give graduates first-hand experience and a chance to put their skills and talents into practice in the workplace. RADAR also includes bespoke personal development and mentorship, tailored to the individual to help them find the best career route.

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. See our RADAR infographic for some of the stats so far.

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
