“Celtic Music Radio will be Scotland’s first educational broadcaster.”
This statement can be substantiated by our links with the University of Strathclyde and other higher and further education instituions around Glasgow and West Central Scotland.
Since its foundations over 200 years ago, the university has evolved and expanded, while remaining true to the vision of its founder – to be the place of useful learning for all.
This joint partnership approach will provide industry focused training in media related business development and operational skills including radio programme research, programme planning, communication and presentation skills, interview skills, technical skills, broadcast journalism and feature development.
Individuals who are not involved with Celtic Music Radio and individuals who are not students of higher education can develop education and training skills, knowledge of working solo and collaborating in teams with individuals with different skill sets, interests and goals to provide content, marketing, advertising and promotional products for live and recorded broadcasting on Celtic Music Radio.
It would be helpful if any individual as outlined above did have an interest in the broad music and culture that is Celtic and roots music.
Modules will be put in place in association with our education partners.
Our educational involvement will be as follows:
• There will be involvement with our education partner, the University of Strathclyde and its staff, students and alumni in this, an entrepreneurial enterprise in the creative industries.
• There will be practical industry focused contribution to the entrepreneurial teaching and learning of students and non students alike;
• There will be the creation of opportunities for University of Strathclyde staff and students to interact with leading industry figures in the Celtic, media and broadcast industries, providing excellent, practically orientated opportunities for engagement and networking.
• Provide a case study on the establishment of media based business in the creative industries and a full platform of research and professional development opportunities across a range of professional and academic disciplines.
Celtic Music Radio is independent of the University of Strathclyde and other educational partners.
However our training is not just about radio, it’s about gaining skills that can improve a peron’s life. This includes transferable skills which can improve a C.V. and confidence that could impress any employer.
We will show a person how to work a broadcast mixing desk and other studio equipment so you can present or produce radio programmes. Many of the skills required to produce a programme on Celtic Music Radio are useful in everyday life as computer software is used in many of the programme production elements.
