Sound Vision believes in iterative improvement and ensuring our trainees influence the development of our programmes.
School can be an intimidating environment. I had to go through a lot of things in secondary school regarding other people and having to get along with them, and just running along with their ideas. Because if I didn't, then there'd be a lot of negativity directed towards me. But it’s the complete opposite here. It's friendly and very welcoming and warm and the people are lovely and very supportive. All the support I get from Maggie and fellow broadcasters is very endearing, it really helps.”
Clara first came to Sound Vision when looking for work experience as a Year 10 student at Norton Hill School. She decided that her work placement would have more value if she had already developed some broadcast skills and confidence. Clara has been attending weekly After School Training for two years. Now in Year 12, she is working towards getting an Arts Award and regularly contributes to the Sound Vision Show.
“After attending a few recording sessions, I realised that this was something I was eager to be involved in beyond a week-long training course. Developing vital social and technical skills could not be more relevant in today’s society. Seeing the impact of young people being given a platform where their voices can be heard is incredibly inspiring to me. I am greatly interested in a career in the media industry, more specifically a career that allows me to present and share my passions with wider audiences. As a student in post-16 education, working with Sound Vision is a wonderful step in the right direction.”
Clara brings first-hand experience of the training programmes to the Sound Vision Advisory board. She participates in an ongoing consultation process and brings valuable insights to aid the development of Sound Vision and our training programmes.
