Global Academy: Apply For A Place

Global Academy

LBC's owner Global is launching the Global Academy to provide training for youngsters who want to work in the media.

Global Academy: Apply For A Place

So do you want to get into radio? Or journalism? Or perhaps you want to learn how to put this page on the website. Then the Global Academy could be for you.

Students at the Global Academy will learn the technical skills needed to work in the broadcast and digital media industry preparing them for jobs in radio and TV production, broadcast engineering, app and web development, script writing, event management, radio production, broadcast journalism and many more.

Ashley Tabor, Global’s founder & executive president, came up with the idea of the Global Academy.  He said: “There is a real shortage of young people coming out of school with the skills needed to work in the broadcast and digital media industries.

"The Global Academy will give our students the practical skills they need to hit the ground running as well as teaching them core subjects in a practical way."

Global Academy

Opening in September 2016, the Global Academy will be on the site of the Old Vinyl Factory in Hayes in the London borough of Hillingdon.  It will house extensive recording and filming studio space, a theatre and a four-storey atrium.
