Now taking bookings for TY Courses!

Ocean Media are delighted to offer two unique, fun and informative transition year (TY) workshops to schools in the North West.

TY RADIO is a practical radio production workshop where students learn what it takes to make good radio.

TY TV is a crash course in TV production live from our Collooney studio.

Both courses are specifically tailored for teenagers, and are a great way to introduce students to many technical and creative career paths they may not be aware of yet.

Introduce your students to the ever-changing world of multimedia journalism!

What does TY RADIO involve?

TY RADIO is a great way to learn all aspects of life in a LIVE radio station. Students begin with a studio and department tour, and meet the presenters and team behind our radio family at Ocean FM. The workshop itself involves writing, recording, editing and presenting for radio. Students will produce their very own radio show with a chance to use Adobe editing software, industry standard recorders and write ads, jingles and news reports.

TY TV is a one day production workshop that offers teenagers a chance to explore the creative art of TV production in a fun and collaborative way. Learn how to write and read news from our teleprompter, record interviews, read the weather from a green screen and produce your own newsroom style show or short film with lots of outtakes and laughs along the way!


Practical skills

Skills developed by students taking part in our courses are invaluable to a career in the media, and transferable to all working environments.

 They will hone skills in teamwork, pitching, self-presentation, editing using audio software, scripting, investigative questioning, mastering and more!
