BBC Radio Workshop with Napier and UWS Students

Scottish Drama Training Network – Radio Drama workshop with BBC Radio Scotland.

16 SDTN network students from University of the West of Scotland and Napier and Queen Margaret universities, recently took part in a Radio Drama day at BBC Radio Scotland.

The students were in their final year of study, on the BA (Hons) Performance (UWS) and BA (Hons) Acting for Stage and Screen (Napier/QMU) degree programmes. They spent the day at BBC Scotland studios, working with Radio Drama Director David Neville. For the second year running, the opportunity was created in partnership with BBC Radio Drama, especially for the Network’s Acting students and funded by the Scottish Drama Training Network.

During the workshop the students took part in radio drama scenes, directed by David Neville and also had the opportunity to learn about career opportunities in Radio Drama.

The students were invited to give their feedback on their experience and all of them rated the training as an extremely valuable and insightful opportunity.

David Neville really made the workshop fun and made me feel very at ease. Thank you!

I feel that after today I would be much more confident when looking for jobs.

SDTN – please keep this workshop running: it is a great opportunity for young actors.

A really great workshop with lovely knowledgeable people. Thank you for organising

SDTN would also like to thank David Neville and his colleagues for arranging such an informative and valuable training for the Network.
