The inaugural intake of service leavers and veterans to graduate from the Forces Media Academy were congratulated by His Royal Highness The Duke of York at a graduation ceremony earlier this month. The event took place in west London where security is provided by a team from TC Security Services.
The Forces Media Academy offers service veterans the opportunity to study for a Higher National Certificate qualification in Creative Media Production, to gain access to an industry where historically people with a military background have been under-represented.
The Services Sound & Vision Corporation (SSVC), of which HRH has been Patron since 2003, established the Academy last year at its headquarters in Buckinghamshire, which was opened by the Duke in October 2017.
Satia Rai, Senior Operations Manager who leads the team from TC Security Services said,
It was a great privilege for our team to welcome His Royal Highness The Duke of York along with the graduates and many guests who had gathered at the venue to celebrate their graduation from this programme.
Satia was particularly pleased to learn of the positive feedback from one of the key organisers Howard Lambert, Audit Manager at SSVC.
The only feedback I can offer up was positive! Everything went like clockwork and we were all extremely happy with the day.
Many thanks to you and your team for your support during the day. It was greatly appreciated and contributed to the smoothness of the day.
