Free Media Training For 18-25 year olds

Media Marketing Co

Help record the amazing story of Greenham Common with the support of leading media professionals.

In association with the major local event ‘Greenham: 100 Years of War and Peace’ we are offering a series of free radio and social media workshops for volunteers age 18-25. In partnership with BBC Radio Berkshire and under the supervision of media professionals, including The Media Marketing Co, we will teach you media skills to help gather and record memories of Greenham Common that will emerge from Greenham: War & Peace, a unique series of events that will mark the 20th anniversary of the Greenham Trust in September 2017. This is an amazing opportunity to learn from and work alongside media professionals and contribute to BBC local radio output and museum exhibitions.

During the workshops a BBC radio expert will take you through some key radio production skills – identifying stories; researching and preparing for interviews; interviewing and editing skills; reporting from location and podcasts. A leading local social media expert will take students through an introduction to using social media platforms. You will conduct interviews with some live guests, and attend the main Greenham: War and Peace events to gather audio and stories which will be offered to various outlets, from online to the BBC…All these skills are relevant for anyone interested in media careers in radio, TV, print and online.

You need to be available for these key dates:

Thursday 13th July, Training Day, Museum of West Berkshire
Friday 14th July , Training Day Museum of West Berkshire
Monday 4th September – Memory Gathering Event, Royal British Legion
Tuesday 6th September – Social media training
