My Day At The Global Academy

Spent the morning with THE most enthusiastic 6th Form media students at The Global Academy!

The Global Academy is a unique school for Year 10 – Year 13 students specialising in the fast-paced and exciting broadcast and digital media industry.

Students experience everything they need to kick start their media careers, from classroom and studio training to exposure with industry professionals via guest speakers, 1-2-1 mentoring and work experience. Their sixth form students leave the Academy with both a network of contacts and a personal portfolio of media projects.

Global, the media & entertainment company behind some of the UK’s best-loved radio brands, are the driving force behind the Global Academy. They believe it’s crucial to arm students with the proper technical, business and creative skills they need to work in the broadcast and digital media industry, and to help them connect their core studies with vocational skills in a truly practical and entrepreneurial way in an inspirational environment. Global are determined to help young people fulfill their potential and want to extend this opportunity to students from all backgrounds.

The Academy’s partnership with the University of the Arts, London (UAL) enables them to offer a rigorous and challenging curriculum. Their students study for GCSEs and A-Levels plus a qualification in Broadcast & Digital Media.
