Free Community Radio and DJ Workshop.

Our Community Radio and DJ workshop is FREE developed out of the passion for sharing the power of community radio and passing on radio and DJ knowledge and skills to young individuals aged 11-18. It also is an opportunity to highlight all the potential avenues of employment to learners interested in radio. We deliver our workshop over four weeks for an hour session each Saturday 4 pm – 5 pm


We teach to small groups of up to 6, this is because we feel our course is best delivered to a smaller group to maximize individual attention and devote enough practical work time to each learner.


Our aims are to:

  • Introduce learners to the Community Radio Sector, Podcasting and Djing.
  • Introduce learners to basic radio production.
  • Support learners in developing skills to support them in future employment.
  • To assist learners in developing personal, social skills and functional skills.

In this training, learners will develop their skills and raise their confidence in:
