Warrington & Vale Royal College students shine on BBC Radio 5 Live’s “Teen 24” broadcast

In an exciting opportunity to get involved in current affairs, students from Warrington & Vale Royal College were invited to contribute their voices to the discussion on the BBC Radio 5 Live show “Teen 24”.

Cassian, Harley and Molly, all students on the college’s popular creative & digital media course, were thrilled to attend the broadcast recording at Halliwell Jones Stadium. They were invited to share their thoughts on current issues that affect young people, including the cost of living crisis, university costs, voting, social media and national service and mental health.

As well as being an invaluable opportunity for our students to collaborate with their peers and advocate for the viewpoints of young people on important topics, this event allowed our diligent media students to take a behind-the-scenes look at the production of radio broadcasts!

Members of the cast and crew of this radio show were blown away by the professionalism shown by these students, with Kathryn, a Senior Journalist, commenting: “The young people were so brilliant, eloquent, informed, confident and funny. We would love to work with the college again!”
