Connect:Transmit, the national project to develop young people’s speaking and listening skills through community radio, is hosting a number of seminars around the country over the next few months. These seminars will highlight the successes of the Connect:Transmit project in working with young people in different contexts, and aim to build links between community radio stations and educational and youth organisations. They will be run by the Connect:Transmit partner stations: shmuFM (Aderdeen), Future Radio (Norwich), BCB (Bradford) and Preston FM.

The first of these seminars, for the Lancashire/NorthWest region, will take place in Preston on the 14th November. The event “is aimed at teachers, creative practitioners and community radio practitioners and will offer ample opportunity for networking and questions.” Register for this seminar at: and for further details contact Darren Jenkinson:
