What is GivebackUK?Giveback UK

Did you know the UK has around 170,000 charities?  Of these we reckon less than 1000 have budget and resources to support their organisation with learning and development.

GivebackUK is a chance for charities to finally get something back – after all that giving!
We want to create free learning materials for anyone within the UK third sector.

Lee Jones, Head of Design at Virgin Media approached us with the idea of working with GivebackUK as a way of assessing and developing his team of designers.

Working with four charities the output agreed upon was to create some content aimed at youth employability skills.  It was decided that video was the best medium for the target audience and we have branded this Clear Lessons.  Using their volunteer days, the team developed a blueprint for creating a library of content along with actually being filmed themselves…. and this is how Clear Lessons was born.

What is Clear Lessons?

A growing library of inspirational videos, using talking heads, real people, real experience, no actors and no scripts – real life!Clear Lessons 150x47

Professional high quality videos of 3 to 5 minutes about their chosen subject, something they are passionate about, something that will inspire and motivate people working in the charity sector.

The idea around ClearLessons is initially to film The Expert Series, starting with Thought Leaders and well known speakers from the L&D world, a way of providing charities and charity workers with access to this wealth of knowledge without the conference price tag.

What are you passionate about? Can we film you?
