Mulberry UTC Digital Media students recently took part in an exciting, hands on practical workshop with Rise Up Academy.

Supported by industry volunteers, including Sky and BBC Sport, they built a studio from scratch and practised taking on all the different roles in a TV studio, including sound technician, communications manager and director.

Students enjoyed networking with the employer contacts and gained a real sense of what a career in the media will be like.

“The overall experience was very educational and a great eyeopener that showed all of the work that goes into great TV. It also helped me have a clearer idea on the paths I want to go down working in the TV and film industry.’’ Chloe Bruce, Year 11
