Working with the Media Course

This is a one day course that aims to give delegates an insight and understanding into how the media works, and it is taught by a trainer who works in national television.  It is suitable for anybody who comes into contact with the media or is likely to do so in the future. We also run a specialised version of this course for scientists, engineers and doctors.

 Armed with the information from these sessions, when delegates do get a call from a journalist, they should be fully prepared and know both what to do and what not to do!

 The sessions on the course  are highly interactive with plenty of practical exercises to reinforce the theory of each module. The cost of the group course starts from £1,525 + VAT and one-to-one coaching from £975 + VAT.


 Working With the Media Course Sessions:

  • Module 1 – Introduction into how the broadcast, newspaper and internet media works
