that develop essential life skills


Kids Course Level One
Kids Course Level Two

Friday 1st November

Thursday 31st October


Do you have a little star who would love to see themselves on TV?


Would you love to see them turn their talent into valuable communications skills that will help their confidence flourish?


We believe that teaching our youngsters to present their ideas and communicate effectively are important life skills, often not taught in school, so we have tailored an exciting experience where they can be a star for a day.


They will learn important skills such as how to use body language and tone to tell their story, how to present to camera confidently using autocue, plus they will have the opportunity to put it all into practice by creating their very own showreel and movie themed photos in our green screen, to share with family and friends.


This experience is delivered in small groups by our expert coaches, based at Pinewood studios, that includes CBBC directors, presenter and writers, all with years of experience turning flair into finesse in front of the camera.  They are here to ensure an invaluable learning experience and lots of fun along the way.’


All children between the ages of 8 to 15 will benefit from this fun and unique day. Children who already have some acting, dancing or singing experience will find an extra dynamic to they're performance while the 'newbies' to drama may be surprised at how quickly they can pick up the ability to perform in a confident, natural and engaging way.


Using a combination of training and fun activities this development programme is designed to build confidence and self belief in young people. We'll also cover some essential presenting techniques that focus on increasing enthusiastic and engaging communication skills that can be used in all walks of life.


Training starts at 10.00 am, so we recommend arriving for 9.45 am at the latest. Each module will be explained, demonstrated and discussed until all attendees have a full understanding. Our trainers will then direct each child with an on-screen assignments and give advice, feedback and recommendations to each individual before re-shooting the exercise. The course finishes at 4 pm after watching some of the days playbacks, time permitting.

Introductions, fun warm up and then straight into the training. Each training module is explained and discussed until everyone is ready for 'TAKE ONE' then each candidate will be filmed, directed and guided before a re-take.
