This month we were joined by students from Shipley College – Btec Creative Media Production Level 2 as part of their “Getting Ready for Work – Out and About Week”.

The students were supported to write their own scripts, choose the topics they wanted to discuss and pick the music they wanted play during the show in the radio studio!

Dipak, our youth music development worker, worked alongside the students’ tutor Karen to arrange the visit.

‘We already had a relationship with the college from having students here on placement so when Karen got in touch we thought it would be a great opportunity for the students to have an insight into a real life working studio.

We did a workshop where we broke down the program into a radio clock and talked about the structure of a show with an intro, music, jingles etc. Once it’s edited the students show will be about 15 minutes long and will be broadcast on the BCB Extra slot. Having the students in the studio was a great way to start my day, we really enjoyed having them here and they produced a great show!’

All of the students had a great time and enjoyed the experience. Lily one of the students was asked what she thought of the visit ‘I have really enjoyed it, sitting in the chair and recording the show was amazing. We all sat down as a group and decided what songs we wanted to play and the things we wanted to discuss. We decided to talk about things that are important to teenagers like music, films, games, and animals. I had never thought about going into radio but after this morning it is definitely a career I’d be interested in!’
