“Whoa! What didn't I gain?! The skills and knowledge have been incredibly expansive.”

Applications are now open for the only accredited management course specifically designed to build leadership skills in the Australian community media sector.

The CMTO is offering a fully subsidised opportunity for you to work with peers and mentors to build leadership skills and boost community engagement.

For fully subsidised courses, the CMTO does not charge course fees to participants.

The THINK BIG: CUASS00099 Community Broadcasting Marketing Skill Set is designed for staff and volunteers who are active members of a station and provides an opportunity to consolidate and develop the on-the-job skills involved in running community media organisations.

This course covers topics including volunteer management, fundraising, sponsorship, and project management, over six nationally recognised units of competency: 

  • BSBLDR602– Provide leadership across the organisation
  • BSBMKG434– Promote products and services
  • BSBPMG430– Undertake project work
  • CUAIND311– Work effectively in the creative arts industry
  • BSBPUB503– Manage fundraising and sponsorship activities
  • BSBCMM411– Make presentations

As the flagship CMTO Leadership and Fundraising course, this nationally recognised skill set combines sector experience and best practice case studies.

Course Date and Duration: This course will start in May 2024 and will be delivered online over 25 weeks.

Course Structure: Students will complete a series of 18 assessment tasks based on two major projects:

  • A sponsorship campaign building on your station’s core income
  • And an enterprise development plan for a new income idea

If you’re a manager, board member or trainer who is involved in community media management, this is your chance to work with sector peers and experts to consolidate your existing skills, learn new approaches, and develop your fundraising ideas.

These units of competency from the BSB Business Services and CUA Creative Arts and Culture Training Packages meet the training requirements for community broadcasting station marketing managers and can contribute credit towards CUA51020 Diploma of Screen and Media.
