What they are:
Specialization, being up-to-the-minute and innovation are amongst the most prominent requisites of today’s workplace, even more so in the creative industry. Which is why RUFA has introduced into its course portfolio the opportunity, for professionals and students alike, to put into practice the workplace skills of certain specific disciplines. The Advanced Training Courses were introduced in direct response to this demand; namely the acquisition of knowledge and experience essential for affirming participants’ competitive edge. These intensive courses are led by teaching staff acknowledged as leading lights in their relevant fields and capable of conveying high level theoretical and practical skills in addition to strategic suggestions useful for bettering participants’ placement within the workplace.
Who is it for
RUFA Advanced Training Courses are aimed at students, graduates and professionals, selected on the basis of criteria concerning the maturity of design skills and attained professional standing. The objective is that of bringing together a community of experts sharing similar backgrounds in terms of training and, therefore, likely to respond most favourably to a highly cognitive course input. Participants may enrol for Advanced Training Courses whilst attending university and other academy courses.
The Advanced Training Courses are structured with a view to maximizing efficiency and productivity. They are concentrated into short timeframes, with intensive lessons involving both theory and practical work which, in addition to being taught by staff of the highest calibre, also benefit from the occasional participation of relevant stakeholders within the field of study in question, thus fostering professional debate and networking systems.
Training and professional credits RUFA issues certificates of attendance following the completion of advanced training courses and can also make provision for the award of training, professional or university credits which may be recognized in future study courses, provided it is in a similar area of study.
