  • Why use social media?

  • How to plan your content effectively
  • Creating a social media policy & crisis management

‘Interesting and useful course’ Jane Fergison (NHS Scotland)

The day includes plenty of group work, exercises and discussion – you definitely won’t be staring at a power point all day. You’ll also be given lots of opportunities to discuss your own experiences and develop personal strategies to aid your work.

If you have one, you are welcome and encouraged to bring your own laptop, tablet, smartphone, or any device you use for your social media. You will be practicing live exercises on the day.

New for 2022 – free follow-up session!

Every course now includes the option of a 90-minute follow-up session on Zoom. You will have the opportunity to discuss your recent experiences, be given time to practice what you’ve learned, and get feedback.

‘Really useful overview of social media’ Andrew Myers (Free Tibet)

Who should attend this course?

This course is specially designed for those new to social media but can also help those more experienced gain confidence. Whether you’re just about to launch a social media strategy or you want to add new skills, you’ll find this course is for you. What this course won’t include is how to create different kinds of social media accounts, but we will discuss which networks are best suited to your needs. We’ll also direct you to the online instructions & films if you’ve not yet created Twitter, Facebook or Instagram accounts.
