Educational Programs

Based in the Melbourne CBD, SYN offers media workshops for school students of all ages – including TAFE and University level students.
All our programs put students in control of a real radio studio. Creating a radio program develops personal confidence, creativity, teamwork and combines oral and written language skills. Every class is taught by a young person, under the age of 26 who has real live radio experience.

SYN offers a range of Media Learning Programs for schools:
