January 2020 progress update
Written by SchoolRadioTorfaen on 5th January 2020
Hello! Welcome to the website for School Radio Torfaen.
With an anticipated launch in early 2020, here is an update on where we currently are in terms of progress…
As you may know, in 2019 we ran a trial period with a group of students from Griffithstown Primary prior to launching the full School Radio Torfaen programme. The trial period was a success and as such, we are now moving forward with our plans to launch on a full time permanent basis.
We are currently internally looking at funding opportunities for School Radio Torfaen. This funding will cover costs for Equipment, Premises Rental & Running, Staff and Marketing.
We have identified a funding opportunity that we believe School Radio Torfaen meets the criteria for and will soon be looking to place an application in. The turnaround is believed to be between 12-15 weeks before a final decision is made.
Our goal is to develop a secondary studio purposely for School Radio Torfaen. However, if funding opportunities are not made available to School Radio Torfaen, we will look at providing an alternative option in order to launch School Radio Torfaen.
