So what’s the programme?
Crack open the media with the Cable.
This programme is for aspiring journalists and those who want to use communication, research and journalistic storytelling to create a better world.
You’ll work in small teams to create and publish a series of stories on an important issue using the training and guidance you receive over the course. We encourage and facilitate multi-media as well as written journalism.
Trainers include journalists from the Guardian, the Centre for Investigative Journalism, the MediaWise Trust and the Bristol Cable. See the video below for a flavour of last year’s course.
What are the sessions?
Leading journalists show you the tools of the trade.
Sessions are introductions to the skills and issues, however, they will be challenging. You will be expected to complete all sessions, homework and other projects. Throughout the course you will be mentored and supported by members of the Cable team. Personal circumstances will be accommodated.
