Project Management Workshop

This one-day workshop provides attendees with a strong project management framework and proven methodologies to drive consistent planning and delivery of projects. Using real case studies, the day is extremely interactive to enhance the learning and the retention of information.

Resource Management Workshop

In this interactive and practical one-day workshop, attendees will learn how to plan and practise effective and commercially focused resource management. Attendees will discover techniques using skills practice and leave the workshop equipped with practical information on the latest planning tools and techniques.

Digital Delivery Workshop

Our one-day Digital workshop provides attendees with a framework and suggested methodologies that can be applied to all digital scopes of work, from small scale online advertising to more complex builds.
The workshop is primarily aimed at people involved in the day to day delivery of digital projects or for those who aren’t hands on, but need to understand the delivery process to be able to talk knowledgeably
to clients or challenge quotes from agencies.

Print Production Workshop

Our one-day Print Production workshop is hugely interactive. Using our print library, attendees have the opportunity to review and explore print formats, processes and finishes.

The workshop focuses on managing creative print Collateral, Press Advertising and Out of Home.

Finally our trainer works with everyone to write artwork briefs and print specifications using physical examples.

Don't take our WORD for it...

Over the last year Melissa and the team have carried out training in project management, digital delivery and resource management for Splash Worldwide. The content is highly relevant and trainers kept my teams engaged and focused. All returned with great feedback and ideas that has enabled us to grow our business further.

Splash Worldwide

I’ve attended two workshops with the Industry School and I was thoroughly impressed with the quality.
The content is genuinely relevant and inspiring and I’ve implemented many aspects of what I’ve learnt within my agency, and have a few more in the pipeline in 2018! The trainers are clearly very experienced and knowledgeable in their fields, and conveyed their knowledge in an interesting and interactive way – no question was too small and they were friendly and helpful!

In 2017 Rothco carried out training in Project Management, Resource Management and Digital Delivery with The Industry School. The content was relevant and the trainers were highly skilled in their field. I would recommend the workshops to anyone who is looking to update their operational skills.
