Media Awareness


If you are a business/organisation or voluntary/community group that want to understand how the press operates to help raise your profile our media awareness training sessions are for you.

By the end of the course candidates will have learnt:

  1. The difference between newspaper, radio and TV reporting
  2. The importance of deadlines
  3. How social media has changed the face of news reporting today
  4. The difference between reactive and proactive and how to manage both
  5. Communication planning and producing key messages
  6. Spotting a story/press opportunity
  7. How to write a press release

Full training notes to support the session will also be given to participants.
