The Radio Training Project commenced in 2008, with 21 Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander graduates in its first year. RTP continues to grow in 2009, and has included weekly Outside Broadcasts at schools, which 30 schools hosted.
Marrickville Council joined an ongoing partnership with Gadigal to train 6 Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Students in media communications.
2009 has seen Sydney community’s targeted including one Regional area. Weekly outside broadcasts will take place all over the Sydney areas including Wollongong, Mt Druitt, Cronulla and much more.
Testimony of the Year:
I have noticed many positive results such as increased school attendance, engagement in school activities and commitment to ongoing projects.
The students have gained an insight into media communications and in the process are helping to break down negative stereotypes in terms of the way Aboriginal people are often perceived in the media” we have noticed an increase in self confidence, and are expanding their social learning skills through human interaction and with the use of modern technology”
