100% online training!

Last Updated on 11 September 2020

Online media training sessions for our charity clients now focus on preparation for being interviewed from home using meeting software such as Zoom, Skype or MS Teams.

We’ve moved all our freelance business skills training online and are putting a particular focus on helping people move through redundancy into self-employment for the first time.

Here are some of the other changes we’ve made:

  • Expanded the range of free downloadable tools and help sheets. No password required.
  • All cancellation and postponement policies have been suspended so that we can be as flexible as possible.
  • We’re advising clients on opportunities for web-based training to replace face to face courses.
How different is online training?

Training can be very effective online, but we don’t expect people to sit in front of a screen for hours on end.

We use techniques and tools such as:

  • screen breaks at least every hour, sometimes incorporating thinking time or paper exercises away from the screen
  • virtual breakout rooms to vary the pace of learning and make engagement more fun
  • collaborative tools such as Mentimeter, which people can access on their phone while taking part in group training
  • downloadable materials online after training

Contact us if you’d like to learn more.

Current web-based sessions will be listed below.

      Thanks for the comments Siobhan. I think you’ll be able to get something, as your accounts are up to date and within the description of the scheme. Let me know how you get on!
