This is a training opportunity with no jobs guaranteed at the end of the training.
Do you want to share your passion for the weather by presenting weather bulletins? Do you have a disability? The BBC does not currently have any weather presenters who are disabled and we are actively seeking to improve on screen diversity.
The BBC Academy is running a free training opportunity to provide an introduction to the world of weather presenting to help men and women with a disability feel comfortable appearing on television, radio and online presenting weather bulletins.
We will be offering a short training course which will provide an overview of working in the BBC Weather Centre and give practical experience in presenting weather bulletins to camera. You will meet established weather presenters and members of the production team and will learn what it takes to present BBC weather bulletins. You will be eligible to apply for future vacancies in the team
If you are selected to take part in the training you will take part in a number of sessions at the BBC Weather Centre in Broadcasting House, London, W1. These will include a masterclass with current weather presenters on what it’s really like to present the weather, a guide to finding your own style with an established voice coach, practical training presenting to camera in the weather studio (including the use of an earpiece and live talkback) and a session with a stylist.
The Ideal Candidate
We’re looking for men and women with a passion for the environment and the weather who have the potential to become presenters in the future. You don’t need to be an expert or to have a qualification in meteorology, but we are looking for people with a proven interest in this area, coupled with lots of enthusiasm!
