About the HBTI


The Glasgow 2014 Host Broadcaster Training Initiative (HBTI) is the TV training initiative for Scotland’s students and it will be delivered in the run up to and during the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The Host Broadcaster Training Initiative is being jointly managed and delivered by SVGTV, the Host Broadcaster for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, and Creative Loop, Scotland’s talent development hub for the creative media industries.

SVGTV brings together Sunset+Vine and Global Television.  As the Host Broadcaster of Glasgow 2014, SVGTV, will be responsible for providing HD television coverage of 11 days of competition from 19 venues. The Host Broadcaster is also responsible for the International Broadcast Centre which serves as the hub for all Commonwealth Games broadcasting activity, handling incoming pictures and sound from venues and distributing footage to international rights holders.

The HBTI will get students from Scotland’s educational institutions trained to sufficient proficiency and experience to participate in the live, global broadcast of the biggest sporting event of the year.

The Host Broadcaster Training Initiative will also provide hands on practical training in live broadcast, creative production and technology skills and will offer over 200 selected students work experience/placements during the 2014 Games.
