The Sky Sports Experience is a fantastic opportunity to reach out to Schools from around the country and give 80 lucky students aged 13-16 an insight into life at Sky Sports and open their eyes to the prospect of a career in Sports Broadcasting.

In collaboration with Sky Academy Studios, this special event will showcase Sky Sports content and career opportunities to young students from up and down the country.

The event is broken into three parts. The first is a Masterclass with Sky Sports Presenter Mike Wedderburn focused on the career journey of a broadcast journalist. The second part is a speed networking session where 8 groups of 10 students get to meet 8 different members of Sky Sports staff and learn about their careers to date and what they do at Sky Sports. In the third and final part, Students will record their own content, using state of the art facilities in the Sky Academy Studios
