Workshops

We offer a range of workshops focusing on media and radio. They are short, structured sessions which provide the ideal starting point to help you decide the most appropriate progression route, as well as providing a solid foundation for your development.

The benefit of studying media & radio related subjects at Sine FM is that, in doing so you are involved in a real world experience, connected directly to professional industry through working in a radio station.

This is also how presenters, producers, researchers, support workers, volunteers etc... are sourced for Sine FM, therefore providing work based progression for trainees.

The following are the workshops that are currently running regularly at the station:

  1.  Do I need any particular skills? - The workshops are for anyone interested in getting involved in community media or those who are interested in writing for radio. Learners who have some previous experience of community media and/or creative writing will find their knowledge particularly useful. You should have an interest in radio as a creative platform.
  2. How will I be taught, and will there by any work outside the session? - You are expected to do exercises arising from discussion during the session. You will also be given time in the session to discuss issues with the tutor. As this is only a one off session, there is no associated work outside the session.
  3. Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring? - For all workshops, there are no costs involved for Doncater residents. If you live out of the Doncaster area, contact us and we can discuss potential costs. You do not need to bring any other materials for either of the workshops.
  4. Do I need to have an interview before I can enrol? - It's not really an interview, but more of 'meeting up'. You would need to complete an Expression of Interest Form and we also need to go through an induction with you, so we need to meet you personally before you can start the course. 
  5. What feedback will I get? - You will receive regular feedback from your tutor throughout the session, as and when appropriate. At the end of the session, you and your tutor will discuss the possible progression.
  6. How will I be able to give my views on the course? - At the end of the session, you will be asked to do an evaluation activity. Please make sure you do this activity. All evaluation received will be monitored and this will help us to continually improve our courses.
  7. How do I find out if I can get some support for my learning? - We can offer education and careers advice, through an external provider. For financial and childcare support, disability support, support for Deaf and hearing-impaired students, dyslexia support, and English and Maths support, contact us.
  8. When I've finished, what course can I do next? - Most learners progress to our further training in Radio Production, however, you can always discuss what your options are with your tutor.
