Training for schools, universities and their staff

(4 customer reviews)


Educational institutions are increasingly required to understand social media and its functionalities. We’ve helped dozens of schools, colleges and universities better utilise social media for stakeholder engagement and to build their online reputations.

All of our sessions are designed around your requirements and delivered one-to-one or to a group of your colleagues. Training is held at our office in Birmingham city centre, your premesis, or via an online video call.


Social media serves many purposes for educational institutions like schools and universities. Students, teaching staff and parents are all present on social media and are free to engage with each other. Leveraged in the right way, this represents opportunities for better stakeholder engagement and social media is a powerful marketing tool for some schools, colleges and universities.

In this half-day training, we’ll work through key concepts of social media relating to the education space. We’ll tailor the course content based on your goals, whether they are around best practice for staff, governance and guidance, or as part of community management and marketing.

As well as being a powerful communication tool for engaging with parents and guardians, understanding social media best practice can be instrumental in helping students increase their job prospects once they leave education. Furthermore, teachers are increasingly finding social media activity being at the heart of welfare issues, and understanding how these platforms work can be critical in effective handling of pastoral situations.


We’ll take into account the existing proficiency of you and the team and our sessions are designed to be one to one, or for small groups but larger groups and presentations can be catered for. Our half day social media training course typically includes:

A basic appraisal of your existing presence or operations

Social media theory and best practice relating to the education sector

Skills development on the key platform functionalities

Cross-platform management strategy 

Best practice advice and guidance 

Resource and tool signposting


We deliver training at our offices in Birmingham, at your premises or via a Zoom video call. If we travel to you, our travel expenses will be payable at cost.

Note – as soon as you have purchased the course you will receive a link to a calendar of available dates where you can choose one to suit you!

    Really informative, these guys have their finger on social media pulse… great training session adapted to my specific needs. I can now see how critical it is to ensure that I understand the full potential of social media platforms. I would not hesitate to use JC Social Media in the future.

Thank you.” “A fantastic chance for any schools… as many know now that they need to use social media, but don’t know how, or what their aims are!”
