Did you know that the ESRC offers free media training to ESRC-funded academics who are working on news-worthy research projects?

The one-day training session is an opportunity for researchers, no matter what stage of their career, to develop their skills and feel comfortable handling media interviews. Whether a PhD student, postdoctoral researcher or senior fellow, the new practical media training session provides the guidance needed to engage the media with confidence – and plenty of opportunity to practice. In small group settings run by journalists, the sessions are full of simulations providing each delegate with expert advice, allowing them to develop their interview technique, explain the findings of their research, and pitch their story. The course is tailor-made for academics with interesting research projects, worth shouting about – no matter the amount of experience you have with interacting with the media.
