ITC has re-designed its training
In response to changes across the arts sector, ITC engaged with its members to find out how professional development needs were evolving. We conducted an on-line survey and held consultation groups in order to discover the best way to support you during this time. After listening to you, our trainers and our instincts we have re-designed our training program to be more flexible, compacted and responsive.
The cuts have meant that many companies now have to stretch their resources even further. Not only are funds in short supply but re-structuring has led to many people having to work even harder. Time and money are only available for essentials.
We have therefore designed a program that focuses on the fundamental skills needed to produce theatre. With a real focus on value for money and time, we have worked to ensure all our courses are packed with useful information and skills development. By condensing down some of our pre-existing courses to have half-days and adapting others we want to create more intensive learning experiences.
ITC has also opened up and diversified the ways in which it supports professional development. We now offer more on-line resources, mentoring and in house sessions, alongside our programmed courses and peer forums. This means that, if there is an area not covered by our training time-table, we will be able to recommend a facilitator to offer one to one support. This knowledge bank of experts will be ITC tried and tested, with a transparent charging structure. We want to remain flexible and responsive, so if there is something people want help with we’ll try are best to provide it.
We believe that it is through investment in people that companies put themselves in the best position to move forward. ITC is here to offer support by providing peer learning, developing yours skills and helping you to adapt to new circumstances.
