Teens learned what it was like to appear on screen when they took part in a taster day last week.
The first-ever Teens On Screen TV presenter taster day was held at 21st Century studios in London Colney with 12 young people learning skills including camera cues, delivery, autocue and working with green screen.
The day also involved learning to ‘walk and talk’ to camera delivering a pre-learnt script in an outside broadcast.
It finished with students pairing up to write their own mini Teens On Screen show performed in front of their fellow students.
They were put through their paces by St Albans-based TV presenter trainers Alistair Divall and Karen Witchalls-Plunkett.

Among the participants was Lewis Peers, 14, from St Columba’s College St Albans who added: “It gave me a real insight into what it’s like to be a real TV presenter and it really boosted my confidence for presenting at school.”
