At the Community Media Training Organisation (CMTO) we’re continually innovating in sector skills development, consulting on high quality effective training techniques and best practice in e-learning. The future of our sector depends on strengthening governance, nurturing leadership skills, and developing diverse income streams for financial sustainability.
A social enterprise and leadership development approach fits with the community aims of the sector:
- Social enterprises are socially-beneficial companies which reinvest profits back into their own activities and for the benefit of their communities.
- Leadership is a process which maximizes the efforts of others toward the achievement of a collective goal.
This project adapts the approach to meet the unique needs of community media organisations. With a focus on increasing diversity, it fosters existing leadership and enterprise potential within the sector through flexible learning and mentoring programs.
