THE PRINCE'S TRUST - LEVEL UP (Manchester)

Gaydio Academy welcomed the Prince's Trust to our brand new Academy Area in March 2022 and delivered radio skills training and insight into how a radio station operates. After completing training, participants became Gaydio Presenters for the afternoon and voiced a show for us in our studios.

What the students & The Prince's Trust thought

  • Ultimately, I can’t speak highly enough of Lee and the Gaydio team for facilitating such an amazing day for the young people. Lee made a massive positive impact on the confidence, communication skills and wellbeing of the young people – thank you so much!

  • The environment Lee created throughout the session was so welcoming, positive, inclusive, and encouraging a true testament to Gaydio’s values. This really showed when he supported the slightly nervous young people (and staff!) through their radio demo
