Sheppey FM’s fully equipped Training Suite is available for schools, colleges, groups and individuals to attend our media training courses and gain accredited qualifications.
Our experienced tutors are fully DBS checked and able to instruct in all aspects of broadcasting from the technical side of running the studio equipment to producing a live ‘on-air’ performance. There are opportunities to progress to programming, production techniques and journalism. We have something for everyone and can accommodate all ages and abilities. Due to high demand we focus our attention and support on those that are disadvantaged or have additional needs and have ensured that all of our facilities are wheelchair accessible.
We are nominated as an ‘Inspiring Youth Project Award’by the British Youth Council and also a registered ‘Arts Award’ Centre and offer our community the opportunities to participate in our exciting training courses. As part of their course-work evidence students complete their own portfolios and on completion of their course receive a CD recording of their ‘live’ on-air show, as broadcast on Sheppey FM.
