Content Design Academy: questions and answers from Twitter

21 July 2020

On 14 July, we hosted a live question and answer session with Clare Reucroft about the Content Design Academy starting in September.

The academy is an opportunity to run a complete content design project for a client, learning from some of the team who created the discipline. Over 14 weeks, from 15 September until 15 December 2020, 18 students will be working on content discovery, production and future planning for a chosen charity.

The academy combines the learning of our content design courses with the practical work of content sprints. All techniques are based on projects we have worked on in government, for charities and in the private sector, over the past 11 years.

This year’s academy will be the second ever cohort, following a hugely successful pilot in 2019. Clare was part of the first cohort and graduated at the end of last year so was the perfect person to answer any questions people have about what it is like to take part in this innovative training programme.

The Twitter chat lasted an hour and we really enjoyed it! We had some great questions and a highlight was when Clare gave us a real peek of her notes from her time at the Academy last year.

Here are some of the questions and responses:

A huge thank you to everyone who took part or followed along during the chat.
