Our Partners and Partnerships

Our Partners and Partnerships

The emphasis on partnership formed the basis of the academy’s inception, set out by founding educational partner, the BRIT School and founding industry partner Maverick TV, who have both worked alongside the sponsors. The early vision for the academy was always to develop a strong outward facing ethos in which students and staff from BOA would benefit from a network of expertise and opportunities from partners and industry curriculum affiliates. These partnerships have continued to flourish in the academy’s infancy; the links with the BRIT School and Maverick remain robust and vibrant, and new partners from across the West Midlands region and beyond continue to emerge as BOA becomes a hub for creative and digital innovation and excellence.
BOA is committed to engaging directly and creatively with its community, educational and industry partners. From the outset the academy has worked closely with Birmingham City Council and the creative industries in Eastside and beyond.
 

Academy partners offer substantial and significant long-term strategic support. They offer high levels of logistical and practical support and / or investment. They offer exciting opportunities for the students to work in collaboration with educational institutions and creative industries on a range of project developments. Importantly, they offer career progression into either higher education or the world of work.
