Students run events to a professional standard throughout the year. Learning in the workplace is the key to our Alumni success. See our Alumni page for just a handful of success stories from our 30 years of training internationally renowned professionals.

We also run Sound Training Productions, a production company offering our current students and graduates a mentoring service, access to professional facilities and referrals for work.
