TrustMedia, a Thomson Reuters Foundation Service, offers a writing and reporting course February 10-14, 2014. The course combines face-to-face teaching with online study.
The core activity concerns the actual writing and reporting of news, as practiced by Reuters and other global agencies. Practical exercises form the core of the program, with an emphasis on improving basic reporting and writing skills including accuracy, impartiality, speed, clarity and structure.
Applicants must be working as a journalist or regular contributors to print, broadcast or online media organizations. They must be able to demonstrate a commitment to a career in journalism in their country, have at least two years of professional experience and a good level in spoken and written English.
Full bursaries are available for journalists from the developing world/countries in political transition working for organizations with no resources for training. Bursaries include return air travel (economy class), accommodation and a modest living allowance.
Thomson Reuters Foundation also offers training for journalists from any region from an organization that has the resources to fully cover the costs of the program.
The deadline is November 15.
