TY Media Week Programme

About the Programme

The TY Media Week Programme will provide Transition Year Students across the country with a unique opportunity to get involved in the creation of content for broadcast on a radio station across the country. The programme is run by Learning Waves and funded by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland through the Television Licence fee. A total of 15 radio stations will take part in the programme between September 2019 and March 2020. Students can apply to the radio station in their area (see list of participating stations below) and if successful students will take part in a one week training programme in the radio station which will culminate with a broadcast of content created and produced by students on a selected programme in the radio station. At the end of the programme, students will be presented with a certificate of completion.
