For Parents

As a parent you may have heard about Sky Academy Studios through school, youth groups or on Social media and wonder what we do so this page aims to give you all that information and more

Sky Academy Studios is an exciting educational experience created by Sky. When Young people attend one of our experiences they’ll get to work with our amazing technology, including green screens, broadcast quality cameras and bespoke touch screen edit tables during a hands on learning experience where they will create a TV news report, a trailer or a vlog.

The visit is designed to give young people a sneak peak behind the curtain to see how content is made and can help develop practical skills like team work, communication, creativity and problem solving.

If your child is already coming along to visit the studios you can find out more about each experience by clicking on the Fact, fiction or Future tabs at the top of the page, If you Childs school or youth group have not been before have their teacher or group leader register on the website where they will then be able to book a trip to the Sky Academy Studios

MAMA Youth

The MAMA Youth Project provides media and entertainment industry training for 18-25 year olds from under-represented groups. Over the last year, we supported 24 young people through an intensive training programme, as well as work experience placements with us and our partners. 98% of the project’s graduates have gone on to work in the media. Last year, MAMA Youth moved into a permanent home at our Osterley campus. This means a closer working relationship and opportunities such as a partnership with CPL, a production company that work on our A League of Their Own, who will now provide production support to MAMA Youth.
