What we do > Professional development


Culture Shift provides inspirational and practical professional development (CPD) through open courses and bespoke training.

We’re a lead training agency for Arts Award and bring our creative skills and solutions-focus to facilitate conferences or networking events that are genuinely engaging and participative.

We have also delivered innovative programmes of professional development as part of broad partnership projects, for example through Open Sesame.

Culture Shift supports people to build creativity into organisational planning, development and individual practice. We use a wide range of creative tools, and work closely with clients to develop tailored programmes to suit your needs.

With our many years’ experience working with arts and public service organisations to promote positive change, we are positioned to be objective in the face of your organisational challenges, whilst holding a deep understanding of the climate in which you operate and working in profound sympathy with your values.

Courses can be delivered flexibly: as full or half days, twilights, or built into project management.

The atmosphere created by the trainer was conducive to valuable discussion.
