What can we do for You?

Pirate FM’s Education & Training team offer a whole host of media workshops suitable for schools, colleges and other organisations working within Cornwall’s communities. We believe media is a great way to engage with people and inspire them, helping them to make the next step in their life whatever that might be. Find out more below

We are currently working on ‘Developing Skills for Business’ with support from the European Social Fund. 

Our aim is to identify skills gaps in the Digital Media sector in Cornwall and ensure that educational establishments are able to run courses that will help Cornwall’s workforce remain at an industry standard level.

If you’re a digital media business based in Cornwall and want to participate in improving skills within Cornwall, we’d love to speak to you.

Bespoke Packages

We pride ourselves on our ability to create bespoke packages at affordable rates for all schools and colleges. Whether EYFS classes are looking at Healthy Eating, Year 6 pupils are preparing for the move to secondary school or Year 10 students are looking at work experience and careers, we can design and deliver top quality programs that support curriculum aims, raise aspirations and boost confidence. Using media production as an engagement tool we provide a unique and innovative learning experience for students and staff. See our blog for examples of media projects we have run in the past.

World of Work

Our World of Work series helps students explore the opportunities available to them in Cornwall as well as prepares them for things like Work Experience, applying for jobs and communicating with potential employers. We aim to build essential employability skills and also offer industry led sessions for media students in the county, giving them a unique insight and experience. See Training for more information on this.

Personal Development

We have experience of working with a range of young people with differing abilities and attitudes. Our bespoke packages can be used to help boost confidence, self esteem and communication skills. They can also be used for issue led work and to explore concepts, develop new learning programmes or engage those who are harder to reach. Call us for more information on how this could look for your setting.

Skills and Development Workshops

You can use our media workshops to engage with some of the hardest to reach communities across the county. We offer a range of packages designed to help those who need most help in life, from the long term unemployed and over 55’s to young mums and people with learning difficulties. Media is a fantastic engagement tool. Inspiring people, giving them self-confidence and raising aspirations is what we love to do most.

Engagement Events

Pirate FM is Cornwall’s heritage station and our listeners love us! Book our community media team at events to raise awareness and attract visitors. We have Pirate FM’s advertising might behind us to help you reach out to audiences and community engagement teams who know how to make people feel special.

Evaluation and Case Studies

Information and communication is what we do best. Use our workshops to find innovative ways of collecting evidence, case studies and evaluation material. How about a video workshop for participants? Or an ad writing day to improve skills, gather views and produce project material? Real life outcomes for participants and vital promotional and evaluation material for you.
