We have a couple of places remaining on the above course taking place at our office in Glasgow on 17 & 18 October.  Places are being funded by Scottish Union Learning and the Scottish Government for NUJ members.  
Increasingly reporters are being asked to work from home although a significant number find themselves representing their bureau in remote areas. Reporters also find that they must file stories for numerous platforms – online, radio, mainstream television – as well as looking after the social media aspect. In addition to operating with a crew these reporters have to be comfortable using a camcorder, a mobile phone or an audio recording device as well as acquiring basic editing skills while remembering that the main thrust of their job is still reporting the news. This specialist ‘hands on’ course has been written for NUJ Training to address this need and will be delivered by a team of NUJ tutors who are used to working in this environment at the BBC.
The course will teach the basic skills such as delivering a live two-way with the studio or putting together a short package for the next day’s output. Participants will be given guidance and assistance on the above, leading to practical “as-live” reporting exercises and filing reports for other platforms.
Should you wish to book a place, please contact me.
