Courses for Journalists/Artists & Musicians/English Language courses for Business Professionals

Training for Journalists

Develop skills to work as a professional journalist in print/radio/TV and online - course for people who either want to break into journalism, or further develop their skills (appropriate for native and non-native speakers of English).

By the end of the course you will know how:

- to contact artists, politicians, agents/managers and editors and then set up an interview

- to structure an interview and ask effective questions to get a strong response (inc. questions to avoid)

- to research/edit your work (inc. advice on key resources and processes) 

- to approach editors to try and place your interview, or self-publish.

These courses include original material, based on my many years experience as a professional journalist and also published/broadcast examples to study. The focus of the course will depend on student needs, but by the end allow you to work as a journalist with confidence.
