Renfrewshire wide credit union (RWCU) is teaming up with radio Clyde to give media students from ‘West college Scotland’ the opportunity to work with RWCU. The students will have the opportunity to visit the Clyde studios and work alongside RWCU to help with their new creative campaign.


The students will attend the Bauer media academy on the 7th of September 2015. The day will have two sessions with around 10-12 students at each session. During the sessions the participants will learn about creating radio adverts, interview techniques and writing for the ear.
