The Institute for the Advancement of Journalism (IAJ), South Africa’s premier provider of short courses for journalists, communicators and media practitioners, and the Internal Institute for Journalism (IIJ), InWent, Berlin, invite mid-career journalists (newspapers, news agencies and online media in the SADC region) to apply for a training programme on ‘Reporting Regional Integration – History, Politics and Economics of SADC’.
The course is intended to support journalists from the SADC region. It is open to mid-career journalists from newspapers, magazines, news agencies and online media. 15 participants will be admitted.
Applicants should have a minimum of four years of professional experience and be proficient in English. Participants will be given an introduction to the history, politics and economics of SADC and will deal journalistically with these aspects.
Applicants should send:
• A motivation letter, explaining what the applicant and their respective media house hope to get out of the programme and how he/she will apply the skills learned
• A detailed CV with clear contact details
• A letter of support from the applicants' employer with clear contact details
The international travel costs to and from the training venue will be borne by InWEnt on the condition that the publishing houses are able to motivate to the organisers why they would not be able to cover such costs. The organisers will cover participants’ tuition and accommodation costs and will provide an allowance to cover meals not included.
