BBC Radio 3 Academy opportunity for young people

Posted by & filed under Training.

The Southbank Centre and BBC Radio 3 are working in partnership during the Pull Out All The Stops festival offering a unique opportunity for selected groups and the general public to step into the world of Radio Broadcasting, unlocking the mysteries of Radio. Taking place from Saturday 15 – Monday 31 March, the groundbreaking residency sees a temporary studio built in Royal Festival Hall’s Riverside Café, where members of the public can witness daily live broadcasts.

Alongside bringing an array of its regular programmes to Southbank Centre and broadcasting live concerts from the festival, BBC Radio 3 are working collaboratively with Southbank Centre to offer 12 lucky young people the chance to be part of our very own Radio Academy over the course of the residency. This hands on academy will be led by BBC Radio 3 Producers and Technicians, and will include in-depth teaching in a variety of skills needed for Radio broadcasting as well as shadowing staff at work, recording and working on their very own broadcast feature package.

The Academy is aimed at 16-21 year olds, possibly with some experience or understanding of broadcasting but still at an early level of knowledge. Students with an interest in classical music and/or the arts are likely to have a more fulfilling experience taking into account the genres Radio 3 broadcast.

The project is structured around 5 taught sessions and additional hands-on project and shadowing sessions (to be agreed as timetables are confirmed, and hopefully a final sharing on the final weekend of activity (29th/30th March)).
