ONLINE LEARNING

A completely new way to deliver media and communications training

We have developed a new training option that is even more convenient, effective and accessible.

Depending on the type of course and your requirements, this can be delivered as online only, or blended alongside a traditional, tutor-led training session.   

This new delivery method has evolved from the way we currently deliver our courses – either through video-conferencing software, such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams, or in-person training (currently delivered in a socially distanced, remote-controlled studio).

Reinventing the way media training is delivered

Take our media skills training as an example. During part one of their training delegates can attend a one hour ‘self-taught’ interactive training session through our bespoke online training platform, where they learn the theory they need for good media interviews.

Once delegates have completed this first part of their training, they can attend a bespoke practical session with our senior journalist tutors, which can be delivered via videoconference or, where restrictions allow, in-person.

Here they will put the skills and techniques they have learnt in to practice, in a selection of interviews for print, radio and TV broadcast.

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

The end result is confident, capable and authentic media spokespeople

Identifying positive media stories

Wouldn’t it be great if everyone in your organisation were on the lookout for positive ‘media friendly’ news stories that your PR and media teams could share? If you like the sound of this, our latest online course can help.

Our online learning platform has been designed from the ground up to complement our in-person and online video-conference training.

Take a tour of our online learning platform below, with Media First MD, James White.

This new training option is fantastic for delegates who:

  • Have busy diaries and are tight on time
  • Are often travelling
  • Like to attend high impact and shorter coaching sessions
  • Prefer to absorb the theory elements of training in their own time before moving on to practical sessions with one-to-one feedback

I would definitely recommend Media First’s training to others. Our trainers were friendly, enthusiastic and professional and all of our group found the day really useful, no matter how much previous interview experience each person had. The day was well structured with lots of discussion and practical exercises and the trainers took care to ensure each person set goals of what they wanted to achieve and that these were met by the end of the day.
