Radio Station Opportunities for Students

Along with ensuring that students are equipped with all the knowledge and skills they require to excel in their chosen subjects, The Congleton College and CHS Sixth Form Post 16 team works with other education providers and local, regional and national business partners to provide a wide range of opportunities to advise, guide and support students for life beyond Year 13.

As part of this programme, our Work Placement Coordinator, Mrs Sadat-Shafai was recently invited to visit local radio station, Silk 106.9. Based in Macclesfield and broadcasting across the region, the station played host to one of our Post 16 students, Abby Wakefield, last summer when she was able to spend time there experiencing life within a busy media environment.

Mrs Sadat-Shafai was welcomed to Silk 106.9's new premises by Station Manager, David Flavell, who discussed the many opportunities for Congleton students to get involved, undertake work placements and see how a radio station works on a day-to-day basis. This offer has been greeted with great excitement by all students, not least those studying on our media courses.

Mrs Sadat-Shafai is always interested to hear from anyone able to offer work placements for students, please contact her by email at: or by telephone: 01260 730123.
