“Being based in the heart of industry meant I was introduced to professionals and work opportunities alongside my teaching. The real stand out experiences I had at the Academy of Live Technology were those when I worked alongside professionals and industry on Production Park. It was an invaluable experience as a student to be part of an established organisation, putting theory into practice and learning on the job.”
