Do I need any particular skills?

NO! Workshops are for anyone who are interested in getting involved in radio & media or those who are interested in participating in community radio. People who have some previous experience of these areas will also find these sessions useful as a refresher.

How will I be taught, and 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 as these workshops are funded until June 2021 by TNL Community Fund If you live out of the Doncaster area, contact us and we can discuss potential alternatives. You do not need to bring any other materials for either of the workshops.

Do I need to have an interview before I can enrol?

It’s not really an interview, but more of ‘meeting up’. You would 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.

How will I be able to give my views on the course?

At the end of the session, you will be asked to complete an evaluation. Please make sure you do this. All evaluation received will be monitored and this will help us to continually improve our services..

How do I find out if I can get some support for 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 course can I do next?

Most learners progress to one of the other courses we offer, however, you can discuss what your options are anytime with your tutor.
