Able have two distinct programmes for schools:
Arts Awards and Engagement
This programme is geared towards mainstream students.
It serves to raise aspirations and increase engagement with education. Previous participants have gone on to further education, and in one case returned to work for Able!
Participants are taught to plan and make a radio show for broadcast. They are then set the challenge of making a second show that is more heavily speech based which they must research, script, arrange interviews for etc.
The topic of this second show can either be selected by the school if there is a certain message they wish to get across, or by the students themselves.
Previous topics have included sports, mental health, local history, exam stress and many others.
