CLOUDBASS EDUCATION

Cloudbass Education is a division of Cloudbass Limited and was set up with the sole aim of providing first class, industry focussed training and development for both its own staff and students looking at forging out a career in Outside Broadcast. Cloudbass itself was born out of Academia and has always held a firm belief in providing the highest standard of training and development for its staff, using the very latest in Outside Broadcast technologies.




BSc (Hons) Broadcast Engineering and Live Event Technology
Commencing 2016, Cloudbass will be running a brand new degree programme in conjunction with The University of Derby. This is an extremely exciting, cutting edge course which will help students to gain the necessary skills which the Outside Broadcast industry needs. If you are interested in applying, please visit derby.ac.uk/courses/broadcast-engineering-live-event-tech-bsc-hons/ for further information.
Leading manufacturers of Broadcast Equipment, such as Calrec and RTS, have also pledged their support to this course.

Managing Director of Cloudbass, Steve Knee, is an ex University Programme Leader with a combined Academic and Industry Experience spanning two decades. Head of Education & Training, Justin Davey, is an award-winning Lecturer and has more than 12 years’ teaching and academic development experience gained from three East Midland’s Universities. Due to this unique background, Cloudbass has an ability to continue to research new ways of getting the job done and encourages its staff to take on this approach too.

Whilst there are many Audio / Video and Media related courses in Higher Education, which are ideal for providing the grounding to students, there is often a very large void between the experience of recent graduates and what is actually required within the industry; Universities on their own, simply don’t have the resources available for students to acquire all of the competencies necessary. Cloudbass Education is therefore ideally placed to help to train students and to immerse them into the commercial world of Outside Broadcast whilst still obtaining the grounding and “life long learning” skills which Universities can provide.

All of our sessions take place in our purpose built training facility at Cloudbass HQ which also gives us access to ALL of Cloudbass’ resources including its fleet of HD Outside Broadcast Trucks and HD / SD EVS systems. We have the equipment, the know-how and most importantly the real world clients necessary to provide learners with a totally unique experience. We also have comfortable surroundings and can cater for hospitality requirements should it be needed.

It is very simple – we teach the most relevant things because we are using those things commercially, for the likes of the BBC, Sky and ITV. THIS is the KEY difference. How many Universities and Colleges can say that?

If you are a University or College wishing to your set Programmes and Modules apart from the competition and to incorporate industry focussed teaching in any area of Broadcast Engineering and Technology, please feel free to get in touch. With Employability never being so important to prospective students, we can help to enhance your reputation and the experience which they receive.

Some recent feedback received from University students who have been studying a module in AV Production, solely taught and managed by Justin Davey of Cloudbass Education include "The best module I have done in three years". Higher education is always enhanced if it is taught and delivered by professionals actually "practising what they preach". Students really like the fact that on a Monday morning sat in a lecture hall, they are being taught by a professional who has been out on site at an Outside Broadcast event the weekend before.

We would be more than happy to discuss your requirements and can offer fully taught Modules, teaching to support parts of Modules and also “Guest Lectures” to enhance existing modules.
