Community Reporting

Our Community Reporting training equips people with the necessary media and journalism skills to begin identifying and reporting local stories. Community Reporters are ordinary people who are skilled in telling impactful stories from local communities and neighbourhoods.

Participants learn skills to produce local news stories using a device they already have to hand – their smartphone. Learning covers: what makes a good story, identifying the best shots to tell it, telling a balanced story, media musts and media must-nots, news-gathering, filming and editing on smartphone, scripting, captions, presenting, and sharing your story.

Organisations who share our mission of equipping people with skills to tell and share their own stories buy this training for their employees, volunteers and communities.
