Skillz with Hillz 

10:00-11:45am TUESDAY 

WATCH/HillzFM runs a free radio training course called Skillz with Hillz which supports participants by teaching them the introduction to radio broadcasting, with the opportunity to have their own regular slot on Hillz 98.6 FM. The radio training sessions also provide the participants with valuable skills such as digital, communication, interview, and professional presentation skills as well as an understanding of Health and Safety procedures in a work environment. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we had to adapt the way we work. We have replaced face-to-face sessions with online Zoom classes and regular video content. We are also providing one-to-one radio training support and regular well-being sessions. We believe that our mental health and well-being workshops help in the development of key life skills that will boost the participant’s confidence, self-belief, and aspirations. Find out more about the course here.
