UK - The leader of Dudley Council was “bowled over” with the life-changing opportunities being given to students at Resonance during a recent visit. Councillor Patrick Harley stopped by the higher education facility based within the DY5 Enterprise Zone at the Waterfront in Brierley Hill to find out how students will be working alongside global company Sports Technology (ST) at next year’s Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Game
ST is the specialist major multi-sports division of Creative Technology (CT) and has been appointed official provider of large video screens and audio services. Alongside LED and PA systems in the majority of the venues, ST will provide a broad range of audio-visual services including a flexible signal distribution network in every venue, providing a fully integrated IP based solution for all non-broadcast audio, video and data distribution.
As part of its bid to provide services, the company had to demonstrate how it would give something back to the community and support a local organisation, in this case Resonance.
During his visit to Resonance, the leader met with some of the team from Creative Technology and Sports Technology who were delivering their first training and educational session to students.
Students were briefed on how the company will support and train them and given details on an ambitious work placement and internship programme, which could see them gain real life experience working within the technology disciplines at the Games.
Rick Benton, chief executive at Resonance observes, “Engaging with industry lies at the heart of what Resonance is about. Through the inspirational training day with Creative Technology, our students have not only gained an in-depth insight into careers offered within the live events sector, and the skills required to succeed, but now have a potentially life changing opportunity to take part in work experience with a leading global AV company at a major international event.”
Lee Dennison, head of client relationships at Creative Technology adds, “After a very hard 18 months for any real face to face student engagement, the attendance, interest, intrigue and positivity from the students was amazing. We spent a great day working them on their professional and personal development and we are really looking to building on our relationship with Resonance as we all move forward.”
