The course will be of benefit to candidates who are eager to ‘get a foot in the door’ of the broadcast industry but currently lacking in the relevant practical experience. It will allow candidates to test their aptitude and build skills in broadcasting and including on-air reading and presenting. It will facilitate candidates to begin to build a portfolio of experience and professional-grade content that will enable them to apply for a range of jobs in the media sector not just in radio or progress further with their education in a more specific field of media.
