Ian Mac, Station Manager, has said:

“This is the third year in a row our training school has been nominated for this particular category, so it really shows that we are consistent with what we do to help young people in our community boosting their confidence and communication skills using the main ingredients of radio.

“Previously we have picked up two bronzes, it would be wonderful to go one better. I have to say just to be nominated is a real honour, I am so proud of our team and all the youngsters that have been on the course, this is for them.”

Councillor Paul Brading, cabinet member for children’s services, education and skills said:

“I am absolutely delighted that the 4P’s programme has been nominated for these prestigious awards. Having witnessed the incredible development of young people that have been through the programme, Ian and his team fully deserve to be recognised in this way. I wish them all good luck in at the awards ceremony, it would be great to win, but just to be nominated at all is a fantastic and so well deserved achievement”.
