20 October 2006 – A training-for-trainers programme will be held in London in November 11-12 2006 to expand the network of trainers used by the Media Diversity Institute (MDI) and The MediaWise Trust for short-course training of journalists throughout the world.
MDI and MediaWise deliver courses on coverage of problematic topics including child abuse, diversity reporting, HIV and AIDS, human rights, and mental health.
Successful applicants will be invited to attend a 2-day weekend workshop followed by a home-based assignment in module development and a final selection workshop. The course is free but participants will be expected to meet their own travel and accommodation costs.
We are looking for journalists with:
– at least five years professional experience in print or broadcast journalism
– practical experience as a trainer;
– fluency in English and ideally at least one African, Asian or European language (e.g. Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian, Spanish, Swahili)
– experience working abroad either as a journalist or as a trainer.
Interested applicants should send a CV and a letter of application to Lydia El-Khouri at firstname.lastname@example.org before 27 October 2006. Successful applicants will be informed by 3 November 2006.
MDI and MediaWise are equal opportunities employers.
