About Media School

We’ll help you get up to speed with new media

The online world can be frustrating and sometimes baffling, we know. But it can also be a fantastic tool to help you further your goals. At Media School, our aim is to help you quickly and simply learn how to get new media to work effectively for your business, project or career. We specialise in short courses (usually one day long.) We also offer in-house corporate training.

We’ve already helped hundreds of people catch up

People from a range of backgrounds have trusted us with their training. Many have been professionals with marketing, PR, and advertising responsibilities. Others have run small businesses. A host have been launching interesting, new creative ventures. All across a range of fields.

There are so many dull training courses out there – this is not one of them

Like you, we’ve endured our fair share of dull courses. We work hard to wake you up, get you thinking, give you the knowledge you need, and inspire you to get going when you walk out the door.

We base our training on solid strategic thinking, but make it interesting, interactive and easy to understand. Classes are a mix of best practice examples, video snippets, live demonstration, creative exercises and lively interaction. Class sizes are small too so you can ask questions and get better value from your investment.

How do we do it? Strategic nous, practical experience and a background in teaching

We like to put you in a creative space

Coming up with ideas for your media platforms is an important part of doing a course with us.

We believe you think more creatively and learn better in a welcoming, creative environment. Which is why we like to run courses in interesting venues – like our little training studio in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. It’s only 15 minutes from the CBD, but a world away from the hubbub and distractions of the city and your office.

Our greatest joy – helping you carve out your own niche online 

We love to see that a-ha moment when our students begin to understand how new media really works – how to connect with their audience online and how to make their mark in the world using the digital media platforms – all on a limited budget. (We loved that moment ourselves many years ago, which is how we ended up doing what we do.)
