YouTube can be a daunting project to tackle. It seems too technical, too time consuming, too stressful… plus, no one likes watching themselves on video!

Starting a YouTube channel may not be easy… but it is simple if you have someone with experience to guide you.

In the past year, we have managed to grow our own YouTube channel by over 700% just because we tried a new strategy that was recommended to us on a phone call from someone at YouTube, and we want to share our knowledge with you so you can succeed too… starting right from STEP 1: how to create your channel.
If you are new to YouTube…

If you know a lot about a certain topic and you want to get into online video so you can share your knowledge with more people…

If you are a business owner who wants to grow their online audience or build more credibility by putting out how-to or tutorial type videos…

If you are already a teacher who wants to reach a wider audience…

Or even if you’ve never taught before, and just want to share what you know with others…

…this course will get you started on achieving your goals.

Everything in this course is designed to get you up and running right away (without sacrificing quality) so that you can establish a solid YouTube presence – and we will be guiding you the entire way.

By the end of this course, if you follow all of the action steps, you will have at least one video up and running on your own personalized YouTube channel starting to get views, and you will also be equipped with a system moving forward to consistently produce more content and get more subscribers.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
