LearnRadio.Net is a project aimed at supporting learning across the curriculum and enhancing children’s wellbeing. Originally broadcasting weekdays during the first lockdown with a 45 minute show packed with a broad range of engaging and exciting themes. The team at Learn Radio now both entertain and educate you and your learners with regular shows each week. Some are broadcast live, whilst others go straight to Podcast.
We also have a show for Educators available Thursdays from 8:00pm called Seeds Of Creativity, we publish all of our shows on our RSS FEED at BuzzSprout
We’re able to take commissions for Radio Programmes and produce audio to National Broadcasting Standards. Our Care Home package is great for a bespoke live dedication driven radio show for residents and their families. Our most recent show for Porthaven Care Homes is available here LearnRadio.Net/Porthaven Please take a moment to read the messages and watch the videos left for residents – radio is a lovely way to bring folks together safely.
