“I took the Beginners radio course at the Radio School in March 2016. The course was over five weeks. The instructor, Mark, make me very welcome and explained what the course would cover. He was very encouraging at all times on the course and help me get the most out of the course. This is a must-do courses if you want to learn about radio and get into the business.”

“I just want to say thanks again for the past few weeks. It was a truly great experience and I’m sure that the confidence in our own ideas and abilities that we have gained will no doubt stand by us in whatever we choose to do next. Can’t wait to hear the finished product.”
David Field, April 2013

“Thank you for the Beginners Course. I have to say I was really glad we were a group of five! Usually courses lose their quality due to the fact of the group being big, so it was great to have a relaxed easy environment. Paul was 5 stars! He was always enthusiastic, full of energy and ready to go every night! Tuesday is my busy crazy day and once I got there my energy would go up straight away! It was a really fun course to do and I learned loads. It’s fantastic that the course is so experimental and we were in the studio! It really gives you the notion of working in such an environment! Again, really glad Paul was our mentor. He was spot on, got us at our ease and had us trying different stuff and was always willing to accept ideas and requests, so it was all very open and relaxed.”

“Just wanted to say a big thanks to all in the Radio school, I think I learned more in that 6 weeks than I possibly could have if I had actually done a full time course in it. The course has really opened up my eyes into the radio industry, and now I am even more determined to present my own show at some stage in the future or even do some imaging. The course itself was really enjoyable, every class was as interesting as the last and the fact that we got our own show recorded was a bonus. All the tutors were excellent, they explained everything clearly and the fact the classes were small meant that it felt like we were being taught one on one. Once again thank you all for a job well done.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the Beginners Course and got some really useful knowledge from it. The guys in the class were great and John was a brilliant teacher. Again thanks for your help and kindness throughout.”
Aidan O’Rourke, March 2012 

I recently attended the Radio School beginners broadcasting course and found it extremely beneficial. The course offers a wide range of introductory knowledge from industry experts and plenty of mic time. The course lecturers James and John were open and supportive throughout and it was a pleasure working with them. On completion of this course, I have a new found confidence and the necessary skills to speak professionally on radio. I would thoroughly recommend this course.”

 “I found the course to be very productive and enjoyable. I would especially like to pass on thanks to Elaine who covered the news content with us, and to Andrea from TV3 who conducted a very useful voice coaching session with us. It was very intense, but beneficial and I learned a lot of useful tips. Also the guy from Cork (sorry, I cannot remember his name) who worked with us in the production studio was very good at working with us, both in recording and editing. I would have no problem in recommending the Radio School to a friend if they were interested in pursuing radio as a career. Wishing you all continued success and good luck.”
