Behind every successful presenter, is a top quality producer, creating and managing content for shows and for individual presenters.
Whether you are completely new to radio or if you already have some radio experience, the radio producer training course from Erewash Sound is suitable for all skill levels.
Our five-session programme is an interactive classroom and hands-on course that will prepare you for roles in radio production.
” Very professional and detailed. I learned such a lot ”
Our producer training course was originally developed as an induction programme for new producers at Erewash Sound.
As with our presenter course, it does not assume prior radio knowledge and can provide a valuable launchpad for a career in the media.
It is an engaging mix of group and individual activities with classroom learning delivered from our facilities at the Media Centre in Cotmanhay, Ilkeston.
