Want to learn how to create your own podcasts? Get practical advice and skills training from experts, and learn how to take your podcast from an idea to a completed, ready-to-upload file, in this two-day school holiday course.


  • Recording quality sound for your podcasts

  • Software and hardware needed to record, edit and upload your podcast

  • Basic audio editing

  • How production elements can improve your podcast

  • Podcast genres/styles

  • Developing content ideas

  • How to structure a podcast

  • What’s next? Channels, options, strategies to further your ‘brand’

This will be a very busy course, students will need to set a side some time on the first night to do a little bit of homework..


  • We will supply recording equipment but it's a good idea to also bring your own basic audio recording equipment (at minimum a smartphone or tablet to record audio OR a hand held audio recording device such as a Zoom recorder)

  • Raw idea for a podcast series (this can just be a basic idea)

  • Access to basic audio editing software on a computer for AFTER the course so you can apply what you have learnt e.g. Garage Band, Audacity, Wavepad, or Adobe Audition. ProTools also appropriate.
