In May and August, as part of the ‘Your Life at Work’ strand, we're offering training aimed at addressing workplace best practice as well as how to stay healthy, happy and productive at work.

If we want to work effectively with others, developing a good understanding of successful negotiation is paramount and will assist us in reaching potentially rewarding agreements and ensuring our boundaries are protected. This will be a collaborative session, in a small group, providing awareness of skills and techniques blended with facilitated peer sharing, support, and learning. 

Who it's for

This course is for anyone working in unscripted TV, who wishes to develop their skills in cooperating with others more effectively.

The majority of the USF online short course offering is for those at early career stage and above. As a result, we generally require applicants to have at least 3 credits (unless working in a traditionally uncredited role). If you strongly feel you would still benefit from the training, please email so we can assess if an exception should be made.

We are committed to ensuring all our courses are accessible to everyone. This course is designed to be as interactive as possible. Please email the above address if you have any access requirements and we will be delighted to help, be that clarifying the form such interaction is likely to take or discussing reasonable adjustments.


John Letham combines relevant and comprehensive experience in the film industry, together with being a qualified executive coach, life coach and action learning facilitator. He seeks to enable individuals and organisations realise their vision by encouraging different thinking and motivation, using a structured, personalised and challenging approach.
