Visivae is about knowledge transfer and was created through an alliance of teachers, media professionals and writers to support the professional development of citizens seeking meaningful employment within the digital creative industries.
Though Visivae is a relatively new entity, our experiences in the development of training programmes for the creative industry comes from the more than two decades’ professional practice by our Director and support team. Since 1994, members of the team have trained hundreds of learners and professionals in the media industry. This includes vocational curriculum design, student support, organising and hosting work placements and apprenticeships, and direct delivery of industry standard training, working in partnership with a variety of educational organisations, broadcasters, producers, arts organisations, manufacturers and local/national government departments throughout Europe and beyond.
As a partner, Visivae will utilise these skills, knowledge and approaches to host and support flows of student groups visiting the UK, arranging professional placements, delivery industry training, learner support and cultural exchange activities to enhance the employability and personal/professional skills of those in our care, maintaining a safe and conducive environment.
All members of the support team have extensive experience of working with young adults, have undergone recent and relevant safeguarding training and are subject to regular enhanced CRB checks.
