A NEW SERIES of one-day business skills workshops for creative freelances is currently under development following the success of the latest series that finished in March.

The recent series of workshops that ended in March covered a range of topics including business management, social media and motivation.

The workshop format allows 40 people to take part and aims to ensure that as many members as possible benefit from FEU Training skills development opportunities.

Each workshop to date has been over-subscribed with additional events being set up to meet demand where possible.

As well as facilitating skills development, each of the training opportunities set up by the FEU take into consideration freelance equality and diversity issues such as affordability, accessibility and relevance.
