Work Experience at SupaJam
At SupaJam we understand the value of work experience as a means to build confidence and self esteem for our learners and to act as a building block for a successful progression into full time work or higher education.
With this in mind SupaJam offers a raft of unique in-house work experience opportunities including music journalism, photography, videography, studio recording, broadcast radio, performance and live event and festival production.
As part of our Careers and Progression we provide industry standard facilities and offer music industry pathways for students who want to enhance their classroom learning and pursue direct routes into the Music Industry.
