Are HODs and team leaders working in Animation and Children’s TV really getting the best from their teams, and addressing underperformance? Do they know how to deal with allegations of harassment or bullying? Or how to crew up effectively - and improve the diversity of productions while staying within the law?

Who it's for

This is for heads of department and managers on animated series or features, or on scripted and unscripted children’s TV productions who are increasingly required to run larger teams and manage staff so this course has been designed to help them to get the best from their teams and help them address underperformance or bad behaviour 

We'd also encourage you to sign up to Disability awareness in association with thinkBIGGER! and Deaf awareness in association with Signpost Productions
