"After seeing the course content, I have to say,
there are many working full-time in radio, who would
benefit from this course! It's also a great
starting point for anyone wanting to get their first
foot on the radio ladder. Very well structured,
with bags of tips and skills advice."
ROY MARTIN OWNER - RADIO TODAY
Our one-to-one radio
presenter training course is 100% geared to your
needs. No competing for studio time with other
students. The day is for you only!
Indeed, we tailor the course to fit your
ensures that you get the very best attention and knowledge. Each session usually lasts
- with a light lunch, late afternoon snack and on-going refreshments included
- and is aimed at the following people:
Those with no radio experience at all.
Hospital / student / RSL / community / local
radio presenters, wishing to either make a move
up the radio ladder, or simply wanting to
enhance their current skills.
Pub and night-club DJs, who want to see if they can make the move across.
With personal tuition from a seasoned radio professional,
your radio presenter training course begins by talking you through the radio studio equipment. After
the initial guided tour of the equipment (and all the technical terms!), you have some
time for hands-on experience. Then we look at what makes a good radio presenter
and what current Station Managers and Programme
Controllers are looking for. Plus, how to
compile show prep, broadcast good links, script read and interview. Lots of do's and don'ts! We then move
on to coaching you through script reading and general links. Pointing out your
weak areas and looking at the stronger points.
With the radio presenter training course being run in 'workshop'
style, and totally devoted to you, the actual duration of the course
depends upon your ability and indeed how many questions you may have!
Indeed, we've spent over nine hours with students,
on a number of occasions. Whatever the
duration, the fee is the same! We believe that
we are one of the few UK radio training providers
that offers this service.
It's not just presentation skills that you'll learn: Hear what Station Managers and
PCs are looking for on that all important demo. You usually only have one shot,
so get it right first time!
We also give you guidance notes from a senior
member of the radio industry. Compiled purely for The Radio Surgery!
You'll leave with
around thirty pages of training notes/practice
props, along with a certificate of attendance.
Plus, you'll also receive some weather and
travel jingles, to practice with at home!
We offer two
versions of our popular one-day course:
As above, plus we
record 2 or 3 sample links on the day. These are then forwarded
onto you, along with an appraisal of your
current skill level.
This option, may be of interest to those already
working within the radio industry, or other DJs.
With this option, you can look at making your
demo at a later stage, or using your own
facilities. The cost here is
an affordable investment of £175 (no VAT).
Option two gives
you the works! Here, we cover all of the
above - except we record a mock radio show (up
to an hour), instead of some sample links. We'll
then forward on to you a professionally produced
demo. The best links from your mock radio
show, all weaved together by our Radio Demo
Editor, Steve. In addition, you'll
also receive an appraisal of your current skill
The cost? All this for just £250 (no VAT)!

weekend radio training courses are available to
clients aged 18 or over. The course is run
