The BBC Academy is the BBC's centre for training. It houses the Colleges of Journalism, Production, Technology and Leadership.
The Academy puts training and development at the heart of the BBC and also works with the wider broadcast industry, equipping people with skills they need for a lifetime of employability in the ever-changing media landscape.
The Academy focuses on providing a portfolio of high-quality training and development. This includes face-to-face courses, online programmes and a variety of development initiatives, and ensures that training is relevant and effective for both the individual and the business.
“We aim to share as much of our training as possible with the wider UK broadcasting industry for free"
As well as training our own staff, we have a remit under the terms of the BBC's Charter Agreement to train the wider industry. We aim to share as much of our training as possible with the wider UK broadcasting industry for free. We also offer some of our courses on a commercial basis, both within the UK and abroad.
