Sky Academy Skills Studios- new session times

29th May 2015

Update 22/07/14- I know many of you were interested in the opportunity to visit the Sky Academy Skills Studio Experience but found the times unsuitable. They are now offering alternatives with sessions on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from either 4- 6pm or 5-7pm. Evening sessions have to be booked directly via email at

Sky Academy Skills Studios is an interactive learning experience that takes young people behind the scenes at Sky. Clyde Scouts have been discussing with the organisers at Sky to see what can be offered to its groups and how a visit could fit in with the Scouting programme.

Using state-of-the-art technology including broadcast-quality cameras; green screens and touch-screen edit tables Scouts would be able to make a TV news report on local Scouting or subjects that fit in with their Group’s interests. We think this provides an excellent opportunity for Scout Sections to earn their Media relations and Marketing badge.

Your free trip to Skills Studios caters for up to 32 Scouts and includes:

  • A behind the scenes tour of Sky Studios and the complex at Sky Livingston.
  • A hands on learning experience at Skills Studios where students will create their own television report.
  • A chance to work with a team of experts and cutting edge technology.
  • A screening of your video on the day and an online link to watch and share the video after your trip.

Visits can take place during the school holidays and after school.

Leaders can download all the resources needed to plan a visit. Click here to take a detailed look at how it works. You can book by emailing Cameron Green at Sky.
