During the workshops, there will also be industry panels and talks and a showcase event at the end of the workshop.
"We will be accepting applicants of all skills and experience, teaching participants how to use industry-standard equipment, how to source, organise and prepare music, [and] elements of radio production and presenting," Mode London said according to DJ Mag.
"This is a great opportunity to get a taste of what it means to be a professional DJ as well as a chance for participants to invite friends and family to see what they have learnt," Mode London adds. "We are also keen to offer radio residencies on our station to committed participants."
