About the Forces Media Academy

The Academy was set up with a £1.8m grant from the Chancellor’s Libor Fund. Initially the grant allows the Forces Media Academy to run media courses for the three years to help service leavers and veterans transition into civilian life. A minimum of 15 students will be trained each year, and The Royal British Legion has also contributed substantial financial support to help students to cover accommodation and living costs.
