One of the primary aims of Celtic Music Radio is to provide education and training in radio broadcasting for people of all ages and backgrounds.
This is achieved informally with our volunteers with “on the job” training in the use of our studios and OB equipment with plans to create a structured training programme for new and existing volunteers over the next year.
We also have links with the formal education sector and have provided opportunities for students from a range of institutions including Glasgow Caledonian University, University of the West of Scotland and Strathclyde University to gain experience in various aspects of broadcasting.
Our links with Glasgow Caledonian University have allowed us since 2012 to broadcast a huge range of musical talent during Celtic Connections. Most recently a team of 15 students mixed the sound for over 70 musicians contributing to over 80 hours of live broadcasting. In addition, Celtic Music Radio broadcast live the Celtic Connections on Campus series, which showcased some of the best talent from Schools, Colleges and Universities across Scotland.
