At Unity 101, we provide a range of opportunities for young people in Southampton. One such project is our #StudentTakeover, where we give valuable learning, training and hands-on radio broadcasting experience to local students.

Through #StudentTakeover, we designed and built radio studios – or improved them, where studios were already present – in local schools and colleges. We then train their staff and students in all aspects of radio broadcasting to enable each school/college to present its own weekly radio programme on 101.1FM.

Tune in to #StudentTakeover weekdays from 2pm to 3pm.

Mondays Itchen Sixth Form College
Tuesdays Richard Taunton Sixth Form College
Wednesdays Barton Peveril College
Thursdays Regents Park Community College
Fridays Oasis Academy Mayfield, currently in training
