Is your research ‘ready for the media’?

November 28, 2016

Did you know free media training is offered to all ESRC-funded academics who are working on news-worthy research projects?

The one-day training sessions are an opportunity for researchers, no matter what stage of their career, to develop their skills and feel comfortable handling media interviews. Whether a PhD student, postdoctoral researcher or senior fellow, the new practical media training session provides the guidance needed to engage the media with confidence – and plenty of opportunity to practice.

In small group settings run by journalists, the sessions are full of simulations providing each delegate with expert advice, allowing them to develop their interview technique, explain the findings of their research, and pitch their story.

There are 10 sessions scheduled across 2017 in locations including Coventry, Edinburgh, London, and Manchester.  Book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
