Running A Community News Room


News, Sport and Community for Manchester

These feature forms part of a FCUM Radio project in conjunction with Manchester Libraries, designed to raise aspirations in people through the medium of radio. 

This community based project is open to all, and is designed to be accessible to everybody regardless of ability and personal circumstances.

Participants learn how to produce a radio programme with FC United Radio in a free 12 week course covering all aspects of radio production.  And in doing so learn how to write scripts, interview, present, record, produce, and edit.

The course is also designed to develop personal employability through building confidence, self awareness, motivation, and social skills

On completion learners achieve a Level 1 Award in Radio Production and a PEARL Employability Skills Award.
