Work Experience Coordinator at Siren FM, Su Roys, accepted the Education Business Partnership Investors in Education Award from Mr Burton, star of Channel 4’s TV Series Educating Yorkshire, after students from schools including Lincoln’s William Farr Comprehensive School and Banovallum School in Horncastle nominated the community radio station for the quality of their work experience placements.
This is the third year that the Work Experience team from Siren FM have been recognised for their outstanding contribution and commitment to training and development of children and young adults from across the county. It ends a year where Siren FM was also awarded the Radio Academy’s Nations & Regions East Midlands Station of the Year 2014.
Accepting the IIE Award on behalf of all the staff and volunteers at Siren FM, Su explained “We have an enormously successful and popular work experience programme, and we make it our top priority to tailor our one week work placements to the needs of our local community. It’s always an honour and a pleasure to be recognised formally by the EBP and our partner organisations for the hard work, dedication and effort our team puts in. To be bold and ambitious in all our work and being able to make a positive contribution to our local community is paramount to us.”
