The programme consists of:

  • Four half-days of online training where we will cover everything from messaging and storytelling to interview preparation and non-verbal communication. Participants will practice a series of different interview formats in front of a camera with framing experts, producers and journalists.
  • Monthly follow-on trainings which can range from interview practice at a BBC studio, to networking events with journalists and peer-review sessions.
  • Following training, members of the network will then be promoted to media outlets by our communications team who offer expert advice to boost applicant profiles.

We are particularly excited to hear from People of Colour, women, trans folk, non-binary folk and disabled people.
