We build capacity through training and mentoring

IMIX delivers regular free online communications training to the sector, as well as bespoke courses when organisations need it. Every quarter we deliver masterclass training courses open to everyone and can liaise more directly with organisations to lead training tailored specifically towards their work and the people within their network. We have developed workshops designed to build specific media skills, from interview practice to telling anonymous stories and using social media strategically. We run mentoring programmes in partnership with Action Asylum and City of Sanctuary, and regularly share opportunities for experts-by-experience through our newsletters. 


Through our invaluable training and mentoring, small charities are given the skills and expertise to communicate with their audience more widely and effectively. This includes working with the press, interview techniques, audience guides and using social media strategically. This empowers them to understand their audience group, communicate strategically and improve the profile of their organisation. The mentorship programme allows individuals to receive focused in-depth support and guidance from IMIX experts to increase their confidence and skills in all areas of communications.
