Course Summary

Journalists and media professionals have a whole host of valuable skills and experiences that are in high demand across multiple sectors. But many of them don’t know how to translate this expert knowledge into media training that can earn them good money.

This online course will enable you to design and develop your own unique media training products - and learn how to successfully pitch and sell these to paying clients.

Over five weeks you’ll learn how to build original media training offerings from scratch, based on your own unique skills and strengths. You’ll also receive regular feedback from an experienced media trainer who has successfully designed and sold education products to clients from a range of different sectors.

Alongside essential resources, activities and discussion, you’ll be provided with step-by-step guidance and feedback throughout. This will include insider tips on how to best price and pitch your offerings for potential clients, and how to make the most of your professional media experience in the commercial world.

You’ll learn about what makes for high-quality teaching and training (pedagogy) alongside practical business skills. By the end of the course you will be able to produce media training you’re proud of and have the confidence to go and start selling!

"Holly is a gifted trainer and delivered an exceptional session for our team on 'practical pedagogy'. As our business develops more training products, it was imperative for us to receive expert guidance on the core principles of learning and what makes great training. Holly's session did just that! We have now been able to apply the theory she introduced us to and are looking forward to delivering our training to clients."  - Standing on Giants Ltd.

Excellent. Great mix of worksheets, slides and enjoyed the group work with fellow participants. This provided an
opportunity to share ideas and past experiences... Holly was very generous in sharing tips from her own training experiences.
