On request, PA Training runs various strands of training about how to manage and run journalist teams. They are designed for editors, prospective editors or those who might be stepping up to the role shortly, in the Media industry. The sessions feature content on, for example, ‘The Journalist as a Manager’ and ‘The Modern Editor’. With 150 years of running news and newsrooms, the Press Association has extensive knowledge in this area.
The courses can be entirely tailored to your media organization or business using examples or issues specifically related to you and your team. We conduct extensive research ahead of the training about the precise issues that individual delegates are facing.
The training can be one, two or three days long and use a mixture of presentation, practical exercises, case studies (relevant to you) and discussion. Once the courses are completed we offer aftercare and one to one feedback sessions as required.
