Over the next twelve months, Find Your Talent PUSH will be working with Express FM radio station to develop an ambitious range of projects, training and programmes targeted at children and young people.
This partnership has a number of strands:
- Weekly broadcasts of the Find Your Talent PUSH radio show on Express FM
- Stand alone Find Your Talent features and podcasts
- Radio workshops and master classes for children and young people
This partnership will promote the key Find Your Talent PUSH themes of awareness and advocacy as well as progression, transition and cultural leadership. Radio is a powerful vehicle for giving people a voice and developing core competencies including creativity, confidence, communication skills and teamwork. It is also is way of enabling young people to positively influence their peers.
The young people involved in these interlinking strands will have full editorial, production and presentation creative freedom in the features and programmes that go to air. There will also be a website and therefore a wider presence.

"Great to have the opportunity to use a professional studio."
"Loved having the opportunity to develop a programme idea, work it up and make all the decisions ourselves... really pleased with the end result."
"I enjoyed the technical bits most, a great feeling when you get it right, with chat fading into music at the right time; I also really liked the unexpected moments. Everyone seemed to be smiling and laughing for the whole day."
