The Central London School of TV and Media Training

The TV Presenter Course take place at Spotlight Studios in the very heart of London’s Covent Garden with so many world famous London landmarks to admire, and a huge variety of international eateries and pubs to explore nearby.

“Our TV Presenter Courses are a whole new experience and really set us apart from all the others” says TV and Media Trainer Steve Blacknell. “We have seen how other TV training companies work and to be honest, they haven’t impressed us much.  They have rigid rules with no room for individual attention and it all feels a bit like being back at school.”

We want to provide an authentic experience that you won’t forget. You’ll feel special, and instead of shoving a bewildering array of lengthy and over-priced courses at you, we’ll sit down with you to discuss your specific requirements.

The best compliment we could hear from a student at the end of the day would be:

“I learned so much and laughed my way through the day too!”

Essentially, we guarantee you will receive the warmest welcome and as experienced media networkers we’ll make sure you become instant chums with your fellow students! We’ll even introduce you to Steve Blacknell’s famous media networking group THE WAFFLE CLUB where you can network with media professionals and create your own set of exclusive media connections.

Our own specially designed one day TV Presenter Course will give you a full picture of just what it takes to get yourself ‘on-screen’ and includes Steve’s very own autocue system which has been tried and tested around the world to huge acclaim.
