Academy puts focus on apprenticeships and careers in media

Young people are to get the inside scoop about careers in media from the newly established Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy in Greenwich.

Members include journalists, broadcasters and printers, who are already mentoring pupils and will offer work experience, careers advice, apprenticeships and job opportunities.

Principal Michael Murphy said: “I wanted to make sure we had a vocational option with real currency. The employment prospects in digital media industries are quite significant.”
