Sky opens schools TV production facility

September 11, 2012

Sky has opened Sky Skills Studios in West London – a pioneering new educational facility which will invite up to 12,000 young people per year to experience a behind-the-scenes TV production environment.

Sky Skills Studios will be used by students aged eight to 18, from across the UK and Ireland, and will provide teachers with a valuable resource free of charge.

With the launch of Sky Skills Studios, young people will be given the opportunity to write, shoot and edit their own television report in one of four simulated ‘live’ studio environments, using real-life HD cameras, editing desks, green screens and props. The final reports will then be topped and tailed with clips from Sky presenters.
