  • Mission statement

    To advance the education and work experience of children residing in the UK by the provision of training in radio presentation, journalism, website design, video production and any other new media, with a view to enhancing their conditions of life, and to work towards a career in the media. Takeover Radio actively involves and broadcasts to young people between the ages of 11 and 25. We operate a non-discriminatory policy; all young people are welcome regardless of their social or ethnic background, abilities or experiences. We offer training, work experience and voluntary work for short or long term placements. Involvement with Takeover Radio improves the confidence and communication skills of our young people, offering them an improved chance of employment both in the media and other professions. We build community cohesion and a better understanding by the young people of their community at large. Our philosophy is to promote self-learning. Following an initial training course the young people are given the chance to develop their own programmes and features, they develop their own audience and ways of communicating with their peers. We offer life experiences which will literally stay with them all their lives.
