The 4Ps Project - What is it?

What is the 4Ps Project?

The 4Ps Project (Sometimes referred to as The 4Ps Training School) is an award winning free course run by Vectis Radio CIC which aims to help young people on the Island to build their confidence and improve their communication skills which will result in greater life chances.

Why 4Ps?

The 4Ps are the four main ingredients of radio:

  • PRESENTING
  • PRODUCING
  • PODCASTING
  • PROMOTING

Around 300 young people have so far benefited from the course, some have chosen to remain volunteering at Vectis Radio and have gone on to present or co-present their own shows. The course can be tailored to individual students needs. Some students have severe physical and/or mental complications that affect their day to day life. The course aims to help everyone at their own pace.

THE VISION

The 4Ps Project aims to provide young people aged 11-19 with the opportunity to build their confidence and improve their communication skills using the key ingredients of radio. Our students often come from disadvantaged backgrounds and/or have additional needs. We want to offer the course to as many young people as possible and the age limit extends up to 25 for those with additional needs. Through working with young people in a safe and fun environment, we aim to significantly improve our students life chances by giving them a platform to build from.

HISTORY

Vectis Radio put in place a teaching program in 2012 which was reshaped as the multi award winning 4Ps training school in 2013. It is the only radio teaching school on the Island. The 4Ps course is designed for young people aged between 11 and 19, or up to age 25 with additional needs, to increase their confidence and build communication skills via the medium of radio. Students learn to produce, present, podcast and promote (hence the 4Ps). To date more than 200 young people have completed the course from schools such as St. Catherine’s School, St. George’s School, The Studio School, Ryde Academy, Carisbrooke Academy and The Isle of Wight College, it’s free for them to attend and has produced some amazing results to date.

 

What is The 4Ps Short Breaks Course? 

The 4Ps Short Breaks course is a Saturday morning version of our award winning 4Ps Project for students who cannot attend during the week. The course runs between 10am – 12pm and costs £5 per student per session. Short Breaks is an IW Council statutory service
