Vocal Training for Radio

Short Programmes upgrade skills and knowledge to ensure success in a chosen field of learning, but are not credit bearing and not registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).

*Course start dates and tuition fees are subject to change.


With the expansion of local, national and community radio and the growth of the independent sector, there is a demand to train a new breed of professionals who have the ability to work in various aspects of media and communication. Correct training is vital to secure work opportunities in this sector, which is provided in this course.


The course provides practical training to students seeking to learn how to produce and present a radio show. If you have no previous experience and want to become a radio DJ then this course provides a great foundation from which to build your career. You do not need radio experience or a media related degree but you do need to be genuinely excited by radio.
