The course surpassed my expectations. Thank you so much for the opportunity for an in house studio, a dress rehearsal, before we do a live interview. I feel more prepared, [the workshop] takes the nerves out of the idea of going into the studio. I would love more of this kind of training for my team members and for learner advocates.

‘It was a great opportunity for TY students in a DEIS school to be able to visit, develop a radio programme and meet others who work in this industry. A fantastic opportunity for the students to get into the studios and developing their literacy and communication skills. I would recommend this course.’
