Podcast training and mentoring

If you and your team would like to learn how to create professional sounding podcasts in-house, why not let us help you develop the capacity and skills to do that?

Our training is bespoke and can be delivered online or in person over a full day or 2 half days. We can offer follow up mentoring and support if needed. We can also provide ongoing support with your podcast production and promotion if you need it.

Whether you are an individual academic looking to build the idea of a podcast into a research grant proposal, an educator building new digital resources for teaching or impact, an engagement or communications team looking to create additional materials to raise the profile of the work you do, we can support you and get you on the right track.

Whatever your reason for wanting to build podcasts into your work, we can put together a package of training to help you gain the skills and expertise you need to create great podcasts for your target audience.

Mentoring and coaching

As you move on from training to getting your podcast off the ground, you may benefit from occasional advice and support to keep you motivated and confident. If you are going to be presenting the podcast and this is something new to you, we can offer follow up coaching and tips.

Social media support

Many clients engage us to set up new or work with established social media platforms and produce regular promotional content around a podcast. This can include the product of audio trailers and looking for opportunities to tap into news and topics of the day.
