ELAM is a world-class 16-19 Academy which opened in September 2014. It offers young people everything they need to build successful careers within the music, games design and film sectors.

This is done through full partnership with the some of the UK’s largest creative companies. We have partnered with sector leading organisations including YouTube, Universal Music Group and Creative Assembly. The result is a best-in-class, well rounded education with a curriculum capable of developing tomorrow’s creative workforce. At its first full Ofsted inspection in May 2017, ELAM was graded Outstanding in every category.

ELAM is now at capacity with 300 full-time trainees on roll and is oversubscribed for each new cohort. It has leading edge facilities that include six industry standard live rooms and two control rooms, a BRIT Trust 500 capacity theatre, 360 degree green screen, a YouTube Innovation Lab, motion capture studios, games development labs, film editing suites, 250 seat cinema and an art gallery. More importantly, it has an exceptional staff group, who are ambitious, systematic,
passionate and take fun approach to their work.

Our ambition now is that ELAM be a truly world class institution for 16 – 19 year olds. Our new Principal needs to embrace our ambition and set a bold vision. Whilst there is much to celebrate and hold onto, this is not about consolidation or slowly iterating an existing model. We want a Principal who will lead ELAM's staff to do their best work whilst being outward facing, highly visible and credible with our creative industry partners. In doing so, you will create a ground-breaking institution in the heart of East London.
