NSP and Sky launch Sky Skills Studios

Posted on Monday, September 17th, 2012

Sky and National Schools Partnership have launched a fantastic new learning experience for young people aged 8-18.

Sky Skills Studios is a new facility at Sky headquarters in Osterley that gives kids the opportunity to write, shoot, and edit their own television report in a bespoke simulated studio. Participants get the opportunity to use cutting edge technology while developing life skills such as teamwork.

The studio experience helps to hone key skills like developing creative ideas and communicating effectively, and also helps to broaden the career aspirations of students who take part.

To ensure the studio experience is a useful educational tool National Schools Partnership developed and tested educational content for 16 topics across five key subject areas. This means the experience links to classroom learning as well as boosting self confidence and improving attitudes to learning.

Thanks to National Schools Partnership’s recruitment work almost 6,000 pupils are booked in to Sky Skills Studios over the next year. Once a school has signed up for a trip to Sky Skills Studios, National Schools Partnership provide them with everything they need to complete the pre-work including script development handouts, storylines and fact sheets, and definitions of all the studio roles.

The launch of Sky Skills Studios on 10th September was marked with a special event featuring Sky ambassador, Ashley Banjo. A group of lucky students had the opportunity to meet Ashley and have their photo taken with him. Sky News also ran an exclusive feature about the launch on their Sunrise programme on 11th September.

Teachers and students who have visited the studio are singing its praises with one teacher describing Sky Skills Studios as “perfect for delivering ‘learning outside the classroom,’” and pupils saying that they “used so much teamwork and creativity,” and that the experience was “definitely fun, because we weren’t doing normal work like we do at school, it was almost like a career.”
