WLR FM and Beat, along with Waterford Institute of Technology, have completed a course for 18 students eager to get a foot in the door of radio.
The students completed the course last week, which provided an introduction to radio presenting & broadcasting. This 10 credit, level 6 course helps those who are eager to work within the broadcast industry.
Over the last 12 weeks, students got to build skills in on-air reading and presenting. As part of the course, they were introduced to the operation of a commercial radio station, the role of broadcast journalists and presenters within it & were introduced to and practiced the skills required, to work in the broadcast industry.
The course will be run again in Spring 2018.
