Training and development courses for 2016

Published on 22nd March 2016

Continuing our popular programme of CPD events, Members and Friends of the Guild can renew and update their skills on three new training courses in 2016, in addition to the regular photography workshop.

The course programme was devised by Council member Julie Mate, who oversees the Guild's training and professional development initiatives.

All three writing courses will be run by training consultant, David Mascord, who has more than 20 years’ experience in journalism and editorial training.

David is well known to Guild Members and has provided first-rate, bespoke training for several years.

Members should note that a new booking system is in place this year, with all bookings being made on-line through Eventbrite.
