Working in conjunction with Creative Skillset’s Skills Investment Fund we have been trying out some new techniques and training with our team and freelancers!

We wanted to encourage management leadership, provide step up training for our full time staff and freelancers, as well as vocational focused mentoring for management, freelancers and staff. We had identified consultants for industry led training to help with internal and external skill sharing, and had also identified that two of the external trainers could also potentially skill share.

Without doubt it is already proving to be useful and we will keep you posted on our progress!


This scheme is funded by Creative Skillset’s Skills Investment Fund.
