Journalism is one of the fastest paced and changing industries there is. Today journalism isn’t just about writing, modern journalism means using digital platforms to produce exciting content in film, podcast, radio, blogging and vlogging.
The Creative Industries broadcasting sector is an exciting place to be. Whether you’re out in the field or streaming from the studio, the UK’s plans for the next generation digital infrastructure which includes full fibre and 5G, will give broadcasters the perfect platform.
A keen interest in current affairs, sports, TV and radio is essential. You’ll develop excellent communication and presentation skills to produce creative industry standard broadcasting outputs. You’ll be working in high specification, purpose built TV and radio studios taking on roles like producer, editor and production manager.
You will have the opportunity to work with industry clients planning and producing creative content, from TV studio productions to live radio broadcasts and you’ll gain skills in communication and presentation. You will also have the chance to work on events, audio production and written journalism.
