How to forge a career as a Reporter/Broadcaster/TV Presenter

In our media career workshops we provide young people with a clear road-map into the broadcast industry because we know exactly what it takes to land a high profile role in the broadcast industry. For thousands of students, forging a broadcast career can be riddled with confusion and a lack of clear guidance and direction. Many media students drop out of pursuing their dreams while others struggle unnecessarily for years before landing a role in radio or television. This workshop provides clarity and a clear route on how to be a success story in this competitive industry.

“Broadcasting careers are very competitive and tough to break into. Having a clear road map will save you years of confusion and wasted effort.
