Aussie Opens UK Radio School

Thursday 29 July, 2004

Former Sydney, Adelaide and Gold Coast identity, Ray Arthur, has started a radio school in the UK for presenters and journalists, designed so graduates can join a station immediately.

The National Broadcasting School, based in The Innovation Centre at the University of Sussex, which launched only in April, has already started its second intake. The two intensive 11 week hands on courses are the only ones of their kind on offer in Britain.

Apart from setting up the school, Arthur - ex-Triple M, 2SM and KROQ - heads the Presentation and Programming Course. He has spent the past six years in London, working as a radio consultant for Virgin, SBS Europe and a group of stations in Athens.

He is looking for enrolments for the autumn, winter and spring courses, which offer thorough training for presenters and journalists, wanting a career in UK or international radio.

The full time courses cover every aspect of skills required for the radio industry. Students learn not only the theory behind their skills, but have to create daily air shifts and news bulletins five days a week.

Students use the gear they will encounter in the workplace, as the school is equipped with the RCS Version XV Master Control, Selector and Linker, Cool Edit and Burli. Journalism students also use the same Press Association facilities they will find in an operational newsroom.
