A group of Year 9 learners had an opportunity to work with a radio producer and presenter from the Bauer Media Group. This project involved creating thirty second adverts to be either aired on Hallam FM or to be used as part of a support website and campaign , YoYo (You’re Only Young Once).
Learners engaged in a workshop about how to plan, script and produce audio media in order to create a successful advert. The aim of the campaign was to raise awareness of the dangers of drinking alcohol to young people. Other schools have produced adverts about knife crime and cyber bullying as well as many other issues that young people may face. The ads can all be found on the YoYo website, which is a platform for young people to go to when they have concerns.
