MEDIA SKILLS

Do you and your team need media training but struggle to find dates that are suitable for all of you?

This is something many of you have told us is a problem when it comes to arranging training.

So, we did a bit of thinking and came up with a way of making our training even more accessible and convenient. 

We’ve combined all the ease of online training with the invaluable experience of being put to the test by a journalist.

During the first part of this training, you and your delegates will attend a ‘self-taught’ online course that will take you through all the theory and techniques you need to carry out good media interviews.

This will take about an hour and is ready when you are.

Once you’ve completed that training from the comfort of your own home or office, or even on your commute if you are feeling adventurous (the training can be accessed on mobiles and tablets as well as PCs), then you will be invited to some in-person training.

This can take place face-to-face in one of our broadcast quality studios, at your offices, or through video conferencing software, like Zoom or Microsoft Teams.

This session will be led by one of our current working journalist tutors and they will put what you have just learnt to the test through a series of television, radio and print interviews.

This personalised session features interview playback and analysis, with personal coaching and feedback, to enable each candidate to reach their learning goals.

And the result is a confident, capable and authentic media spokesperson.

On this course you will learn:

  • What makes something newsworthy
  • How to create powerful messages
  • What you should wear if you are going to be on screen
  • How to manage those tricky – but increasingly popular – telephone interviews
  • How to stay in control when things get tough
  • And you’ll get the chance to put your learning to the test with our current working journalist tutors.

 

Who is this training for?

Anyone who wants to improve their media skills and become a better media spokesperson.

We’ve always prided ourselves on our training being bespoke and we can tailor this training to experience levels, aims and requirements.
