Sunset+Vine wins AGCAS Award for Host Broadcaster Training Initiative
Sunset+Vine has won an AGCAS Award for its Host Broadcast Training Initiative for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
Nominated by Birmingham City University, the AGCAS Award was given in recognition of ‘excellence in careers and employability service engagement’, which is part of the National Graduate Recruitment Awards 2022.
Building on its extensive background in training and development, Sunset+Vine partnered with Birmingham City University, Create Central, WMCA and Solihull College to deliver the Host Broadcast Training Initiative (HBTI). It will offer 200 work experience placements on its outside broadcasts and studio productions.
In addition to this real-world experience, trainees will benefit from industry-level skills training across a variety of disciplines including live TV, broadcasting and production. These placements will culminate in the opportunity to work within the Host Broadcast team in a professional (paid) capacity at the Commonwealth Games.
Games time roles will include content creators, production co-ordinators, media managers, camera operators, edit assistants, loggers, live gallery PAs, assistant floor managers and technical roles with S+V’s outside broadcast suppliers.
In keeping with the producer’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, the HBTI aims to train participants in current industry skills gaps specifically targeting underrepresented groups. Its mission is to leave a legacy of a skilled, diverse and inspired workforce to fuel the next generation of TV industry professionals in the Midlands.
