About the studio

We have a fantastic studio with excellent facilities which allows young people at our charity to independently produce their own shows.Closeup of a brightly coloured computer monitor used to broadcast on the radio


Students use a touch-screen PC to produce their broadcasts. It has a large display with high-contrast colour scheme, magnifier and screen reading software in order to support a wide range of vision impairments.

Some of the students who have their own shows are studying the NCFE Radio Production, Podcasting or Music Technology courses.
