Creative Skillset – the skills body for the UK’s creative industries – is partnering with universities and specialist organisations to offer a range of free online courses on FutureLearn. They will help current and aspiring creative professionals enhance their skills. In this post, we preview four of the brand new courses.
Brand Storytelling: How to Use Narrative to Sell
On this four-week course, top creatives will show you how to engage audiences through storytelling – from crafting a narrative to using digital.
It’s been developed by D&AD – a global organisation that inspires, celebrates and enables creative excellence worldwide.
Film Production: Behind the Scenes of Feature Filmmaking
The Production Guild of Great Britain will give you a guided tour through the process of making a feature film on this course.
Over three weeks, you’ll meet some of the people who make films every day, discovering the structure of a film crew and the different types of production.
How to Build a Sustainable Fashion Business
In this five-week course from the Ethical Fashion Forum, you’ll explore what sustainability means in the context of running a fashion business.
You’ll learn from leading entrepreneurs, looking at everything from business strategy, to setting up a supply chain, to pricing and selling your products.
An Introduction to Screenwriting
The University of East Anglia have built this course with educators and recent alumni from their famed Creative Writing course.
Over two weeks, you’ll look at the key concepts and fundamental principles involved in creating a screenplay – the essential work from which all other filmmaking flows.
Alongside the four courses above Creative Skillset is also supporting the previously-announced course, Digital Storytelling: Filmmaking for the Web, and three further courses, which will run in early 2016. Find out more in our press release.
