We offer training for journalists to understand religion – and for faith groups to understand the media. Our trainers are experienced journalists and trainers who work alongside academics.
We understand the need for religious literacy in the media and are offering a variety of courses to enable journalists to learn more about religious and non-religious world views in Britain, to enable a deeper understanding of the variety of beliefs.
We have a course, Reporting Religion in Britain, which gives an overview of beliefs and organisation of faith groups, alongside challenges in reporting religion, such as language, balance and fair representation.
Academics and journalists have pooled skills to offer a range of half-day or evening courses on different faiths and beliefs, including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, the Sikh Tradition and Non-religion.
For faith groups and commentators:
We are offering media training courses for faith groups and commentators, to give greater understanding of how the media works and opportunities to practise media skills.
Courses are usually held in central London, although we are planning to deliver some elsewhere in the UK this year. Keep watching this website for details.
