The masterclass programme

The masterclass programme was set up to offer young people opportunities to take part in a series of development sessions with the aim to start a career in the sports media.

The programme has historically been delivered in London but the sessions have recently started running in the North and Midland regions of England.

The sessions in the North are supported by BBC Sport and the sessions in London are run in partnership with Meta and Nike
