Erewash Sound Academy

Erewash Sound Academy logo

The Erewash Sound Academy is a major element of our full-time operation, offering valuable opportunities regardless of your age and experience, enabling all to become actively involved in providing a radio station JUST for Erewash.

The hub of our training programme is at our studio site based in the Media Centre of the former Bennerley School site in Cotmanhay, but programmes are open to the wider community, the general public and educational establishments.

We have recently began to deliver recognised NCFE qualifications with a timetable of courses offering:

NCFE Level 1 Award in Radio

NCFE Level 2 Award in Radio - Create a Radio Programme

Contact us to find out more about our obligation-free taster and introductory sessions to understand how the Erewash Sound Academy can help you to reach your goals.

'Studio in a Box' for schools

Training programmes have also been established to compliment the national curriculum, with our ‘Studio in a Box’ programme available for us to bring the radio studio into primary school classrooms, developing communication and team-working skills whilst producing a radio show that can be recorded for listening back with the whole class.

Schools can find out more about the intiative at our "Studio in a Box" Open Evening on Monday 15th October 2018. Drop in anytime between 4pm to 7pm. Click here for more info on the opening evening.
