Sky Academy Skills Studios is a half-day interactive learning experience giving eight to 18-year-olds the chance to use the latest broadcast technology to make a TV report on subjects they’re studying at school. We’ve combined a behind-the-scenes tour at Sky with hands-on experience of our purpose-built studios where the students write, produce and direct their own short news bulletin.

The young people are supported by a specialist team and staff volunteers who help them use their creativity, communication, planning and teamwork skills as they explore topics linked to the curriculum, such as cyber-bullying and natural disasters.

We currently have two Skills Studios, one in West London and one in Livingston in Central Scotland. Each has the capacity to host 12,000 young people a year.

If you know a school who would like to attend either of our Sky Academy Skills Studios, teachers can book through our teachers website.

Sky Sports Living for Sport is made up of multi-week and one-day sports projects with schools throughout the UK and Ireland.

Founded on the belief that sport has the power to transform young people’s lives, the initiative aims to help them build practical skills and self-confidence. Working with the Youth Sport Trust, Sky Sports Living for Sport links teachers and their students with our dedicated team of over 130 world-class athlete mentors.

The initiative reaches one third of secondary schools across the UK and Ireland. We also run  Sky Sports Living for Sport Live events which are  one-day sports experience for primary school students, supported by 2,000 Sky staff volunteers each year.

We’ve linked Sky Sports Living for Sport with our on-screen sports programming, including Sky Sports News HQ and Sky Sports Game Changers, to offer top tips and feature sports stars to inspire young people to get involved through sport.

After 14 years Sky Sports Living for Sport wraps up in July 2017. This fantastic partnership with the Youth Sport Trust has reached over half a million young people, inspiring them to achieve their best, and develop skills like teamwork and confidence to unlock their potential.

Let teachers know they can get their school in Sky Sports Living for Sport, through our teachers website.
