Prince Charles and Camilla will visit Osterley this afternoon to open Sky's new 'careers lab'.
The royal couple will be shown around the Sky Academy Careers Lab, where young people can learn the skills needed to break into the news and entertainment industry.
They will meet sixth form students from Lampton School in Hounslow, who are among the first youths to get the chance to work alongside Sky staff using the same equipment as the professionals.
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will also meet pupils from Alexandra Primary School, in Hounslow, during their tour of Sky's newly redeveloped west London campus in Grant Way.
The pupils are among 12,000 school children each year to attend the Sky Academy Skills Studios, where they get to make a news report on a topic they are studying at school.
Before they leave, the prince and duchess will be introduced to some of the athlete mentors helping pupils as part of the Sky Sports Living for Sport initiative, as well as graduates and apprentices involved in the Sky Academy Starting Out programme.
Sky's group chief executive Jeremy Darroch said: "We are delighted their royal highnesses, who have done so much for young people, will join us today to open Sky Academy Careers Lab.
"At Sky we want to help young people from all backgrounds develop the skills and confidence they need to prepare them for the world of work.
"Our ambition is to engage with up to one million young people through Sky Academy by the end of the decade."
