On Thursday 7th May 100 year 9 students will have the opportunity to take part in a work related learning workshops to give students an insight into careers in the television industry. The 4 hour workshops will provide an excellent platform for young people to learn about the wide variety of jobs involved in TV; not only the roles that would expect like presenters, writers, producers and actors but also camera operatives, accountants, engineers, technicians, HR specialists...the list goes on!!
The RTS will be bringing with them a guest speaker, Isabel Clarke, who is Chair of the Royal Television Society in the Midlands and who has had an interesting career. She will talk to the students about her skills and jobs and she will be the judge for the presentations in the afternoon.
