young person learning audio skillsCommunity radio training projects have been proven to support people in the most deprived communities to overcome social and personal barriers to work.

We enable participants to develop a wide range of skills for work and life including teamwork and time planning as they make radio programmes about their local area.  They learn to research and interview well and develop ICT and digital media skills that are widely sought after in the labour market.

As learners work together on their radio projects they inevitably improve their communication skills especially in presenting their views to others, raise their self esteem and become more confident and ready to engage in the world of work.
