Interested in training with us? It’s easy.

All of our on-air volunteers and producers complete training at 2XX. 2XX is a great place to learn, make alternative media and build community. The journey will continue!

Training takes place in small groups (up to 5 people) and can be a great way to meet other 2XX volunteers who are getting started.

Training groups are run in accordance with demand. There is a fee to cover the costs of training.

Contact us via the webform if you wish to apply to present a show or if you are interested in training.

The training covers:

  • 2XX history, culture and programs
  • An orientation of the station, office and studios
  • Community Radio Codes of Practice
  • Music and spoken word content best practice
  • Some media law 
  • Sponsorship
  • Music and copyright
  • Programming at 2XX
  • In-studio training: panelling, basic recording and editing
  • Basic microphone technique
  • Preparation of your show, considering content, themes, promos, music and talk.
  • Preparing and sharing a ‘demo’ recording with peer feedback at the end.
