ICO training courses offer staff of independent cinemas, film festivals and film societies the opportunity to update their knowledge, learn new skills, meet colleagues from around the UK, share best practice, and gain inspiration. Take a day out of your busy working schedule to assess what you're doing right and what you could do better, and return to work with new skills, fresh ideas and renewed confidence. We run courses around the UK and, wherever possible, secure funding to keep the course fees low and to offer travel and accommodation bursaries. Since 2003, we have trained over 1,000 people from more than 635 organisations.
For an idea of how ICO training courses work, watch the below video for a brief overview of one of our courses.
