What is the UCB Academy?


If your heart is full of dreams and you’re looking for a new adventure in helping to build God’s Kingdom, the UCB Academy could be just what you’re looking for. 

The UCB Academy is a one year course, offering a unique blend of online and on-site training, designed to help unlock and release your God-given potential in:


Each Academy student is offered a placement with a UCB team of their choice and could be involved in: 

Learning all that goes on behind the scenes at a national Christian broadcaster – everything from producing a radio show to filming life-changing stories.

Developing devotionals that are read by hundreds of thousands of people or creating content for social media platforms.

Growing strong admin and organisation skills which can be used in lots of different environments.

In addition, UCB Academy students are embedded into UCB’s culture and have opportunities to attend sessions with inspirational leaders, represent UCB at national events, and gain a deeper understanding into media, mission, and the power of God’s Word to change lives. Students will also receive a qualification in leadership* (ILM).
