World Class Opportunities

World-class work experience opportunities are coming in thick and fast for students studying our Live Events Production FdA and BA (Hons) degree courses, with Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Eclipse in the UAE, BPM SFX, and Ibiza Rocks being just a handful of world renowned companies and festivals contacting us this year. The quality of placements on offer is reflective of the standing Backstage Academy holds within the industry, and being able to offer life changing opportunities to our students is something we take great pride in.

“The quality of opportunities on offer shows just how much trust is placed in Backstage Academy students, and pays testament to our track record of nurturing talented, industry-ready young professionals” said Sara Gleadhall, Business Development Director at Backstage Academy.

Students advancement into industry is clear to see, with graduates being employed into many varied roles. Jordan Potts was recruited by logistics specialist Brian Yeardley Continental after he graduated from the FdA in 2015, where he now plans the freight and ground transport for world leading tours, whilst completing the Live Events Production BA Top Up degree. Other recent graduates have landed exciting Project Management roles across the Production Park Group, working on a diverse range of projects, including: productions for Rammstein and Coldplay, automation for MUSE, and the Mercedes garage for the 2015 Formula 1 season. Harry Heathfield who graduated in 2014 now leads the Automation department for Brilliant Stages, which is part of Production Park.
