The unique event organised by Global Academy and Resource Productions saw all students spending time with a plethora of creative industry professionals to better our learners on their next steps for a career in the creative industry.
Taking place over two rooms – the session was alive with industry-leading broadcasters like Global, BBC Studios, ITV and Sky as well as marketing agencies, broadcast suppliers, talent management companies, journalism training academies, production companies, apprenticeship and training providers, and local employers like Canon and Berkshire Film Office.
The event was also attended by Global Academy graduates Jasmine Wissart who joined the Global stand to talk about her experience from joining Global as a Marketing Executive after leaving the Academy and Kiana Joseph as part of her work as a Brand Ambassador for Brixton Finishing School’s range of workshops and initiatives for getting young people in the advertising industry.
Students were also able to be informed on the variety of training options available to them such as Further and Higher Education from a representation from a large range of universities and colleges including our Ravensbourne, Kingston College of Art, Brunel University, LMA, LIPA, City University and our founder partner – University of the Arts London.
Younger students were given a range of exciting activities to do alongside the employers to help them discover and explore their careers – while our Sixth Form and Post 18 students used the opportunity to extend and develop their networks. After the main fair – a selection of Year 13 students joined employers for a unique network lunch as they start to prepare for their next steps after Global Academy.
The event was well-received by partners praising the opportunity to be back in the room at in person events after the last two years of virtual events!
“We had a blast at Global Academy today as we went down to showcase our Content Academy roles going live at the end of the month. It was so nice to be out talking to students face-to-face post-pandemic!”
