The success we have had is phenomenal! Whether it’s somebody with low self-esteem or communication problems or somebody with learning difficulties and speech problems, a whole wide range of people have benefited from the program, many have even gone on to become presenters with Vectis Radio.
The 4P’s Project was set up in 2013, and piloted using three teenage girls from Christ the King College. The 4P’s Project was asked by the Isle of Wight Council to provide services until August 2016 for young people aged 11 to 19 years, and up to 25 with additional needs. The project has so far helped in excess of 60 youngsters improve their confidence levels and communication skills.

The course is also available for young people who have an interest in media (specifically radio) to improve their chances of a job in the industry or to find out whether or not they would like to pursue it as a career.
