We are very excited to be welcoming an outstanding group of over twenty participants onto our Creative Leadership Online Pilot this week (w/c 30th March).
Our participants will meet together, with the course leader, on-line and in a live virtual environment. They will interact using, audio, webcam and text-chat; be able to view slides and even videos. The sessions can be recorded and course materials provided so that participants can review and develop their learning later, in their own time.
This particular format is the second stage of development for the Creative Leadership workshop – the initial phase being the traditional face-to-face workshops. Whilst the traditional workshops are a very powerful and effective means of developing individuals and increasing the performance of teams and businesses; we are now looking at how smaller businesses, typical of the Creative Industries, may access excellent skills and personal development in the future.
It is therefore our hope to further develop this particular workshop for on-demand learning; using a self-directed course, online. This third form of the course would enable participants to access the course and content from any location at any time. It will be highly interactive and contain a diverse range of engaging and entertaining forms of learning.
This virtual course has been designed and developed for Red Kite by Isongo Limited; one of a very small group of consultancy firms at the leading edge of, on-line and virtual, professional performance and development. Isongo has been working closely with many Blue Chip FTSE 100 companies with particular focus in the area of virtual training. We are delighted to be able to bring this quality of expertise to the animation, games and vfx community.
It would not have been possible to provide this course without the support of Creative Skillset, for which we are hugely grateful. A very big thank-you to Helen, Suzie and all the team who’ve helped us over the past six months.
This scheme is funded by Creative Skillset’s Skills Investment Funds
