FEU Training - the training arm of the Federation of Entertainment Unions, of which the NUJ is a part, offer FREE courses to NUJ members. Upcoming FREE courses for the summer include: include MailChimp for emails, newsletters and mailing lists; achieving your career goals; become a successful blogger and managing your finance. To register for any of the courses, go to www.feutraining.org.You'll need your NUJ membership number at the ready (it's on your membership card or Press Card).
But the funding of FEU Training - which allows them to offer this FREE service to NUJ members - is in danger. FEU Training needs to meet targets to ensure its continued funding, including members completing short online quizzes to assess their skills in English, maths and IT. Please take the not at all great amount of time to fill out this quiz online at Skillcheck (choose the "non-unionlearn" and then "NUJ" menus).
LFB's own training operation is planning a possible Teeline shorthand course for later this year. This will be probably take the form of a combination of some face-to-face sessions with a tutor, followed by modules that participants can complete online by self-study. We need to gauge whether there is demand for such a course. To register your interest in an LFB Teeline shorthand course, fill in the London Freelance Branch training survey, which will be linked from this page shortly - hopefully within days of the time of writing..
