JCI UK Academies

JCI UK is extremely proud of its suite of academies - full weekend events designed to equip members with specific skills to help them be better members, leaders and active citizens.

As with all JCI events, these courses are interactive, intense and impactful.  Participants learn in a safe and supportive environment and leave buzzing with ideas and inspiration to take back to their local chambers, personal and professional lives.

Communications & Marketing Roadshow

Saturday 2nd Feb, Saturday 16th Feb and Saturday 23rd March

This year, the JCI UK Communications and Marketing team are going on tour! There are three stops to make sure we hit all local regions:

JCI Belfast – 2nd Feb

JCI Southampton – 16th Feb

JCI Nottingham – 23rd March

We’ll be delivering a full day of training designed to support you in both your JCI roles, and in your day jobs. The session will cover everything from the importance of branding (and a refresher on the JCI brand!), to the basics of design, all the way up to using Paid Social and Google Ads.

Faciliator Academy

Saturday 9th March to Sunday 10th March

JCI Facilitator is a two-day course that creates a unique learning experience where participants engage and influence their own learning through the exploration of progressive facilitation models. The skills and knowledge learned on this course will help delegates in their work lives, particularly those with an interest in delivering training, both within and outside of JCI. This course was developed in recognition of helping to ensure high quality trainers in JCI & modern techniques.

It is a JCI global policy that, from January 2020, any JCI member wishing to deliver an official JCI course (such as JCI Impact), will need to have already graduated from JCI Facilitator.
