  • 03 Dec 2014Media students collaborate with The Hive Business

    The Media department at BCoT have announced a collaboration with Basingstoke creative design agency, The Hive Business.

    BCoT Media students will have the unique opportunity to work with The Hive Business on projects that will help them specialise in highly creative thinking and visually displaying their ideas in an industry setting.

    The learners will work on corporate videos, websites, apps, marketing, social media, and photography and animation projects in a real time commercial environment during upcoming collaborative projects and work experience.

    Ian Howe, co-founder of The Hive Business, said:

    “We want to connect with Basingstoke people looking for an outlet for their passion and this collaboration with BCoT links in with what we want to do in the company. We are looking to empower young people.”

    The Hive Business are currently working on developing an app, Puddl, which will connect creative people with job opportunities and work experience. This partnership will allow BCoT Media students to work with the company to help design and develop elements for this application.  

    Scott Hayden, Media lecturer at BCoT, was delighted to announce the collaboration. He said:

    “Ian contacted me and was keen to help our students get started in the industry. This is an excellent opportunity for the learners to get work experience, potential apprenticeships and live projects to enhance their CVs. Courses at BCoT create professionals and our collaboration with The Hive Business further proves the College’s commitment to helping young people prepare for University or the workplace.”

  • 02 Dec 2014BCoT Staff Start a Football Team

    BCoT staff have joined forces with the Hampshire FA to create an 11 a-side football team playing in the Hampshire Workplace League.

    BCoT Sport and Public Services lecturer, James Harvey, was approached by the Hampshire FA who did not have enough players to make a team of their own. James and six members of staff at the College have since started playing for ‘HFA & BCoT United’.

    The College’s players have had an immediate impact with lecturers Jamie Dockree (2) and Rob Steel (1) both scoring on the opening game of the season. This match ended in victory for the Hampshire FA and BCoT team as they made a comeback from 3-0 down to win 5-4 against the ‘Barclays Hasselbainkers’. Manager on the night, James Harvey was delighted to get the season started with a win, he said:

    “It was great to see the BCoT and Hampshire FA staff come together and play so well against last season’s league winners, Barclays. Hopefully we can take this good form into the next game.”

    The next game comes early next year when HFA & BCoT United will come up against their local rivals, the Queen Mary’s College Staff team. Last season, the combined BCoT and HFA team defeated QMC in both of the fixtures they played against each other which has left the players with a lot of confidence going into next year’s game.

    The combined squad are playing their games this season wearing a brand new purple kit emblazoned with the BCoT logo, paid for predominantly by the College who fully support the team’s efforts in the Hampshire Workplace League this season.
