Sky news update: the ex professional footballer David Beckham has recently helped Sky unveil their brand new centre; the Sky Academy, based in London.
This new academy provided by Sky aims to create opportunities for children, and was recently unveiled by ex-footballer and England international David Beckham. One of the goals is to try and help the children reach their full potential in their skills. If all goes to plan they will have helped coach one million young people by 2020.
This state of the art institute will help develop each individual’s skills so they fulfil their potential to the best of their abilities. They hope they can inspire the under 25s from across Britain to help others in their efforts to succeed. They plan to inspire their pupils by delivering guidance from role models from televisions, the arts and sport. Skill studios in Livingston, Leeds, and Dublin to accompany the London studio have also been set up to help nurture the children’s life skills through a curriculum-based experience.
The Sky Academy ambassador, David Beckham, is set to lead a range of sporting stars such as Jessica Ennis-Hill, Ashley Banjo and Darren Campbell during the project. Beckham joined the Sky CEO, Jeremy Darroch, at the unveiling ceremony at the London based studios where the academy will operate from for the majority of the time.
In the skills studio, the youth of today will be taught how to operate the latest and best technology which is used behind the scenes at the Sky work places and sets. Sky Sports Living for Sport, will also be included in the academy. This service has been in operations for the past ten years
It works in schools using sports stars to motivate young people. For young people who enjoying creative fields such as the arts and people who enjoy sport, scholarships will be offered if they are considered to be an emerging talent or could have a promising career in their chosen field. The scholarships will offer mentoring and financial support for the lucky few who qualify for the scheme.
The scheme will offer specialised work experience with Sky and other renowned firms which could lead to future employment opportunities. These scholarships will be offered for secondary school pupils up to graduates. The academy is the latest push by the firm to help develop the young people of today. It will tie in nicely with the Sky Sports Living for Sport scheme which is already in operation in Ireland and the UK.
