Learning is knowledge acquisition.

Whether formal or informal, set across multiple channels and media, engaging citizens into a mind-set of lifelong learning. 

Inclusivity and confidence are vital, building trust, security, ethics, culture and creativity, to develop new societal norms for the digital age. Crucially, we develop practical, citizen centred solutions that can inspire, prove concepts and be scaled to impact any community.

Our work with communities works at different levels, from digital connectivity, skills and inclusion, through engagement with rich media local content, to developing cohesion and citizen interaction.  We empower the communities in which we work by setting wide agendas for inclusive, digital engagement, building on a very practical vision of digital activity being of direct public good to individuals, families, groups and community stakeholders, with the ethos that through digital activity, physical communities become stronger.

These skills and tools can be adopted by any community creating exemplar, digital-ready, aware communities that are ‘living laboratories’ for our work.

Ci works in partnership with the Ministry of Defence, to support its Service Leaver resettlement programmes. Ci is proud to demonstrate its commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant by making resources available to support the design, development and delivery of bespoke training courses. A specialist practitioner course is now exclusively delivered in the UK in partnership with the IBM Citizenship programme and to date a 100% success rate has been achieved. This course is co-ordinated via a leading Service Leaver charity, SaluteMyJob.

Multi University Campus

Ci is working with Pascal International Observatory to develop a multi-university campus at Ci’s Corsham HQ, centred on research, education and business growth, covering cyber security, data science, creativity and the digital economy. This campus will have a physical presence in Corsham, but work virtually with academic partners across the UK, to co-create and deliver bespoke educational courses and training programmes.

Creative Digital Media Apprentices

Since September 2015 we’ve delivered a rolling apprentice programme in partnership with Cirencester College. Following their successful graduation from the programme, our initial cohort have been employed as full-time Media Technicians to help plan and manage the ongoing apprenticeship programme and to deliver creative content across our programmes.
