Workshops & Tasters

We offer workshops in radio and media. These are short, structured sessions which provide a foundation and ideal starting point. They can also help you to decide the best next-steps for you.

Workshops are how all volunteer presenters, producers, researchers, tech support, start at Sine FM. If one of these volunteer progression routes sounds like the kind of thing you’d love to get involved in, book a workshop now to start your journey.

The benefit of studying radio & media at Sine FM ( Higher Rhythm) is that it’s an authentic experience. You are instantly connected to the media industry through studying in a real licensed radio station.

Radio & Media Introductory Programme

The introductory programme is designed for those interested in getting involved, but unsure which route they should take. The programme explores the radio & media industry and gives insight into what Sine FM and community radio stations are all about.

Schedule:      On-going, depending on the availability of attendees.
Duration: A session is usually 3 hours.
Group size:  Maximum of 5.
Costs:            Free of charge for Doncaster residents.



Do I need any particular skills?

No… Workshops are for anyone interested in getting involved in radio & media or people interested in participating in community radio. People who have previous experience will also find these sessions useful as a refresher.

Will there be any work outside the session?

These are some exercises during the session but there are no associated work outside the session.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

For all workshops, there are currently no costs involved for Doncaster residents. If you live out of the Doncaster area, contact us and we can discuss potential alternatives. You don’t need to bring any materials for either of the workshops.

Do I need to have an interview?

It’s not really an interview, more of ‘meeting up’. You need to complete an Expression of Interest Form and we also need to go through an induction with you, so we need to meet you before you can start the course.

What feedback will I get?

You will receive feedback from your tutor throughout the sessions. At the end, you and your tutor will discuss the possible progression routes. At the end of the session, you will also be asked for your feedback. Please make sure you do this. All evaluation received will be monitored and this helps us to continually improve our services..

Can I get support with my learning?

We have several IAG qualified staff so can offer of signpost to further education and careers information. For financial and childcare support, disability support, support for Deaf and hearing-impaired students, dyslexia support, and English and Maths support, contact us.

When I’ve finished, what can I do next?

Most people progress to one of the other courses we offer and some progress into volunteering. You can discuss your options at any time with your tutor.
