What is the Eagle Radio Media Academy?

Jack shows you what you can do at our Media Academy!


A fun, exciting six week media training course for young people, which takes place in our professional radio studios. 

After the success of our first ever courses we are excited to announce new dates for our next Media Academy courses, training young people in all aspects of modern media in a professional work environment. 

You can choose to attend either the Saturday afternoon or Wednesday evening courses.

What does this media course cover?

Led by Eagle presenter and tutor Jack Johnson, the programme consists of 6 sessions over the course of a school/college half term and covers radio presenting and production, video production, social media, influencers, YouTube, DJ and mixing skills, advertising and journalism.

It's not just about radio - learn how to make YouTube videos, produce a podcast, write a news story, create and advertise a product and much more - it's media work experience in a professional environment, but also something fun for kids and teenagers to do at the weekend. 

So whether you want to be the next Calvin Harris or the next Zoella, this media training course caters for you! 

With small class sizes and expert tuition, it’s the perfect way to gain experience of working in a respected media company, while having fun!

How does it work?


The sessions are split into 3 age groups:

RISING STARS (ages 8-12)

A fun and engaging 'introduction to modern media' course, to build confidence and learn new skills - a extracurricular club that is both educational and entertaining!  

FUTURE PROS (ages 12-15) 

A training course to help teenagers find out which areas of media they are most suited to, through enjoyable practical group and solo tasks, and getting used to working in professional studios. 

PROS (ages 15-18)

A complete enrichment programme designed to prepare older teenagers for future work as a media professional, with real work experience to add to their CV.


(please note: if you are 12, you can choose to join either our RISING STARS or FUTURE PROS groups. If you are 15, you can choose to join either our FUTURE PROS or PROS groups)


What are the dates and timings of the next Media Academy course?


The next LEVEL 1 course will run on Saturdays and Wednesdays - you can choose to attend either the Saturday course or the Wednesday course, whichever works best for you. 

It starts after May half term, with the first Wednesday sessions taking place on 5th June and the first Saturday sessions taking place on 8th June. 

If you want to take part but can't make one of the sessions, we will do our best to accommodate you in one of the other groups for that week so you don't miss a session, or we'll arrange a catch up session at our studios.
