Reaching out with a helping hand

By March 9, 2020Training

As we reflect on a highly successful Apprenticeships week in Scotland, an advert I read today from Amazon reminds me that there is a learning journey in all of us, one that lasts a lifetime.

Whether you are at school considering which subjects to study, at college or university working towards a formal qualification or in a job where you are offered mentoring and training to help you gain wider experiences, we are never too old to learn and to embrace new opportunities.

Amazon’s pledge is all about giving everyone an opportunity to get the chance to move up the ladder. Something that chimed with me as I attended the strategy launch of Corra Foundation’s 10-year plan where guests were asked to build one thing from Lego that would make a difference in our communities and I built – you’ve guessed it – a LGBTQ+ ladder.

Everyone has the ability to grow and learn new skills. The secret is to find the right way of delivering training which resonates with each person as an individual.

As a trainer of Scotland’s first CPD accredited media training course for professionals, I work with a range of people coming from different experiences, backgrounds and starting points.

The common thread is that they want to learn new skills to keep their professional development up to date and relevant to their day-to-day work.

Indigo’s bespoke training delivers accessible, hands-on learning, using real-world scenarios to give a clear understanding in what to expect when engaging with the media, as well as how to deliver messages to audiences via the media clearly and with authority and impact.

Courses are running over March, April and May and if you would like to learn more about Indigo’s CPD Standards Office accredited Media Training for Professionals course, which attracts 4 CPD points, please get in touch or email
