This thread may be of interest to those wanting a career in either Sound & Lighting workshops or the Arts / Drama / Broadcast and will be updated as / when I come across more information.

Although mainly aimed at young people looking for a career in the above and about to leave school, although most of the courses are available to anybody.

Please contact the people running the courses directly for more information and application forms, since I haven't any experience of these personally, and neither can I pull any strings on your behalf! rolleyes.gif.

BTEC DJ TECHNOLOGY INFORMATION

However, the course is also weighted with some Music Technology and Studio work, so make sure that you have some interest in these areas too.

Doncaster Courses

Gateshead College

South Nottingham College

Kent College

Print out the course information from the main BTEC website (first link) and give it to your careers advisor, they should be able to find other colleges offering the same course.

The NADJ Youth Development Program & Youth Scholarship Program

2008 sees a new and overdue initiative from the National Association of Disc Jockeys (NADJ)

The introduction of our Youth Development Program is aimed at introducing young up-coming DJs to the exciting and varied world of DJ’ing and giving them the support they need to find their niche in this industry.

It is not an exaggeration to say that this is long overdue and now, our Chairman has made it his personal target for this year to ensure this program gets off to a great start and has the impact necessary to help develop DJs of the future. It will give them the guidance they need, not only in DJ’ing and music, but in the areas of audio and visual technical work, even starting and running their own business or working on contract.

This year NADJ are introducing a DJ Scholarship program. There will be two positions which will be decided by application and interview. Initial application can be done by completing the form, by voice message or by video message. The scholarship is aimed at, but not restricted to, those committed to starting or improving a career in DJ’ing who are 15 to 19 years of age.

The scholarship program will last a year and will consist of the following elements.

1) A 16 part, 8 week course encompassing all aspects of DJ work from music construction to AV signal technology. From mixing to business practices. These can be attended in different locations around the Country.

This course is well established and recognised across the industry as the best available.

2) Mentoring by the NADJ Youth Development Team which consists of NADJ members with a wide range of DJ’ing experience from mobile to club to radio. Advice and encouragement wil be available 7 days per week throughout the year by text, phone or email.

3) A program of work experience including a minimum of two sessions (ie. 6 in total) with each of the following: a mobile DJ, a club DJ and a radio DJ. Also a session at a professional mixing studio. All costs will be borne by the scholarship.

Unique and superb opportunities to see and experience first hand how a DJ works, what each of the disciplines is like and give the young DJ exposure to help him or her understand the opportunities available.

4) 1 year’s free membership of NADJ

5) Voluntary participation in NADJ Youth Development Program events around the Country, throughout the year.

6) All course fees and travel costs for the above activities to be paid by the scholarship.

To download an application form contact me via PM ow visit the NADJ web site as I can't get a link to work!

You are welcome to apply.
It doesn't matter whether you have started working as a DJ or not.
The only thing that matters is that you are committed to completing the year as it is not a cheap exercise and we don't want to waste money, resources or peoples' time. Or waste the opportunity that someone else could have taken.

Bottom line is, the two that get it will be the one's that we are convinced want it the most.
