dock10 has welcomed the Reporter's Academy and The Prince's Trust as they introduce the next generation to the inner workings of television production. During a free ten-day course, held at dock10's facilities, 16–25-year-olds from Greater Manchester explored the range of careers available in the television industry. The students gained valuable insights into what happens behind the scenes as they learned a broad range of practical skills through masterclasses on topics such as script writing, camera work, lighting, and video editing. This included hands-on training with industry experts who shared tips and experiences from their own careers. The students went on to use their new skills to make and showcase their own mini-TV package at dock10.
