Moorlands Radio, which is based in Leek, has started the scheme as an 'open door' opportunity for anyone who wants to try presenting.
A one-hour slot between 10am and 11am on a Sunday evening has been allocated for student presenters.
It is hoped that each student will get three one-hour shows.
Moorlands Radio is also hoping to extend this to one night in the week as well. It is open to all ages.
Glyn Andrews, from Moorlands Radio said: "We hope that it will be a good service to the local community and hopefully give us the opportunity to spot new talent. The academy has proved to be a success so far as two new shows have been started up with people trained through the academy."
Katrina Luton, is presenting a rock show, including local rock music, on Monday evenings between 9pm and 11pm. In addition Matt Hill is starting a new show on a Sunday morning between 10am and 1pm, including discussions with local churches and the local farming community, looking into what's important to them.
Moorlands Radio has recently acquired a new road show van, partially funded by Heritage Lottery Fund, which will enable them to get out and about at more community events.
