SYN’s workshops and educational programs allow schools and community groups to learn media skills across radio and digital media, to then produce their own original content at SYN. The Educational Programs Trainers & Producers, work within the SYN Media Learning team and are responsible for conducting SYN’s various educational radio programs. Our casual staff work directly with students and community groups, introducing them to SYN and teaching them how to create radio as part of our various structured programs. If we find you to be highly engaged and skilled, you may be considered for larger scale tailored projects or running training in regional areas.

FAQ: What is the difference between ‘SYN Media’ and ‘SYN Media Learning’?
SYN Media is a non-for-profit media organisation, run by young people, for young people. Our goal as a charity is to provide accessible broadcasting and hands on media training opportunities to young people. We are an independent, self funded non-for-profit organisation that works with volunteers to help make it all happen. SYN Media Learning is our social enterprise. This means all of our educational programs we run with schools and community groups directly financially support our operations as a non-for-profit charity, and keep the doors open for our 500 volunteers to create content in programs across our various platforms.
