The Midlands radio academy is a professional training arm of Midlands Radio a not-for-profit community interest company which delivers a genuinely local radio station for local people, run by local people.
We deliver online bespoke training opportunties for young people from presenting to production to working behind the scenes we help people to establish and develop their skill in media. All of our courses are designed to be enjoyable, fun and interactive, using a blend of theoretical and practical learning in our sessions.
Not only do our students learn new skills, but our courses also improve confidence, communication, and increase employment prospects.
Crucially our training does not assume prior radio experience, so the knowledge and hands-on skills are backed-up by practice sessions, production of demos and provision of feedback before broadcasting live on our online radio service.
We pride ourselves on giving our students the best possible training and learning experience.
Our training programmes are open to the whole community, the general public and educational establishments.
