Hear what students have to say about training they've received as part of the Host Broadcaster Training Initiative - TV training for Scotland’s students in the run up to and during the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

As of February 2014 a total of 131 students and staff have received Safe Management of Sports Productions Safety training. The content of this training will provide the basis for the Health and Safety Unit of the new Professional Development Award (PDA) in Outside Broadcasting (in a Multi Camera Production).

Sophie Hogg, one of the students from the University of the West of Scotland explains how the training will benefit her as an aspiring production coordinator.

Jonny Kerr, from City of Glasgow College is hoping the course will increase his job prospects working in post production.

Jack Trumble, from Glasgow Clyde College is looking forward to work experience as a camera operator and has learnt some valuable lessons from the training.

As part of the HBTI, students will also receive pre games training using state of the art outside broadcasting equipment which will also provide them with the necessary knowledge and skills relevant towards the attainment of the PDA and their games time experience.
