22 Mar 2023 : News Desk
RTÉ and Virgin Media Television, together with Creative Futures Academy (CFA) have announced applications are now open for their brand new course in IADT, Professional Training for Live Studio Broadcasts.

The three-week course will take place from 6th June 2023, where participants will learn from industry experts and practice in broadcast standard facilities. The training course will be based in The National Film School at IADT, with a one-week work placement at RTÉ and Virgin Media Television.

The one-week work placement will provide an opportunity to develop participants’ abilities and gain skills in live studio production with hands-on learning in a live gallery environment. 

“RTÉ believes this partnership is not just a unique opportunity for students to get real broadcast experience, but for broadcasters to find fresh talent,” said Kevin Burns, Head of RTÉ Learn and Access. “Creative Futures Academy allows students to take the next real step in their career while also getting top notch academic qualifications”.

“Virgin Media Television is delighted to support training and development in the Broadcast sector and welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with IADT, RTÉ and Creative Futures Academy.” added Áine Ní Chaoindealbháin, Deputy Managing Director at Virgin Media Television

The course offers 18 places, including a small number of free places for supported scholarships and is built on three strands: Content Creation, Production Operations, and Technical Competencies. The scholarships offer the opportunity for learners to unlock their creative talent and align with each partner’s commitment to diversity and inclusion in education and the workplace.

David Cooper, IADT Course Lecturer said: “IADT has an excellent track record in offering fit for sector education. The professional training course will be delivered by industry leaders in audio, vision mixing, gallery operations and camera lighting. I look forward to working with Virgin Media Television and RTÉ on this new and bespoke Creative Futures Academy course.”

This opportunity is aimed primarily at existing professionals with at least 2 years experience working in the broadcast industries who are interested in upskilling and/or reskilling in one of these key areas: Lighting Operator (including vision control), Studio Camera Operator, Vision-mixer, Sound Operator, Floor Manager, or Production Assistant / Broadcast Co-Ordinator.

On successful completion of this course, participants will receive a Level 9 Certificate in Multi Camera Television from IADT.

Closing date for applications is 5th May, 2023 at 4pm.
