Children are being given a hands-on experience of what it is like working in radio and the media thanks to a collaboration between Mansfield’s Making it! Discovery Centre and Takeover 106.9 Radio.
The family attraction is working closely with the radio station tomorrow (20th February) to provide young people with the opportunity to learn and practice interview and presentation techniques.
The aim is to set them in good stead for real-life work situations by giving them vital experience, as well as giving them a taste of life working in radio.
Making it! CEO Susan Walters said: “We are very happy to be working with Takeover Radio and would like to encourage members of the public to come down to the Discovery Centre on Thursday to support everyone involved.”
Making it! is part of the independent charity- Making it Industrial Heritage Trust Ltd, while Takeover Radio is operated entirely by the charity Sutton Youth Radio Ltd and is broadcast on 106.9fm across the district of Ashfield and to the world via the internet.
