‘Learning to take risks’ at Channel 4

How do you build engagement with the necessary constraints of ‘codes’ and ‘policies’ in an organisation that thrives on taking creative risks?

Acteon helped Channel 4 harness the power of e-learning to capture its core values and use them to promote the exemplary professional practice that underpins cutting edge broadcasting. Engaging, interactive content and attractive, intuitive interfaces are combined with powerful learning management. Staff response has been excellent, business impact has been demonstrated and critical audit requirements met. Learning to Take Risks is helping Channel 4 fulfil its remit to push boundaries, whilst maintaining viewer trust and reputation.

Creative organisations like Channel 4 have always found it very hard to get this kind of training right. People can easily see the material as patronising – or irrelevant. But this course is different, because it’s been designed with risk-taking right at its heart, and that’s resulted in a great response from staff. Learning to take risks helps us to be bold, brave and courageous – whilst maintaining our accountability and our reputation.
