Free radio training with Radio Northern Beaches

Radio Northern Beaches is offering a free one-day radio training course at their Terrey Hills studio on Saturday 10 September.

This free training day and annual membership, which is typically priced at $300, provides trainees with a whole list of important skills needed in the broadcast space such as learning the technical operations of a station, how to conduct interviews, preparing a program, and media law.

“We hope to attract people who would like to join us, but are put off by the
cost of training and membership, particularly young adults and seniors
on low incomes, people with disabilities, and others for whom the cost is
a deterrent,” said Andrew Goodman-Jones, the Chair of Radio Northern Beaches.

Working in community radio is a great opportunity to those seeking to establish themselves and gain experience producing great local content, he said. 

“It’s very satisfying to create a program that local people will enjoy listening to.”

The course, which is funded by a Government grant, can accommodate up to fourteen people, so get in quick!

Application forms must be received by 7 September. They can be accessed at https://forms.gle/nXufehLQ82h4SdUEA
