JAMES and PSNEurope launch ‘Training Survey’

Publish date:

JAMES (Joint Audio Media Education Support) and PSNEurope are collaborating to find out the training needs of people in all sectors of our industry with the launch of a ‘Training Survey’, created by JAMES executive director David Ward.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is vital for the future. And you, the readers, can help us create up-to-date CPD by completing this survey and passing it on to others. We have tried to keep it as simple as possible, whilst respecting that there will be a huge range of needs and levels of knowledge.

Basic business and entrepreneurial skills are vital for work in our industry, as are up-to-date information about copyright, contracts, metadata and royalty collection procedures. We have included questions about these areas.

Several manufacturers and suppliers provide quality training and there are questions related to these and this survey will help them.

Your feedback is very important to us and the survey should only take a few minutes to do. All replies are completely anonymous, but please complete the section for your contact details, so that we can keep you updated on developments.

As a little incentive, there’s an iTunes voucher, worth £50, for one lucky respondent, picked at random, when the survey period is over (11.59pm, 8 October 2014). Terms and conditions can be found on the survey’s intro page. Here we go then...
