MEDIA TRAINING - Call for applications

  • Are you an IFA/AFG member?
  • Are you studying full time or under 35 years old and working in forestry?
  • Would you like to participate in Media Training as part of your professional development and build your capacity for future opportunities?

The Institute of Foresters of Australia (IFA/AFG) and the Future Foresters Initiative (FFI) are offering financial support to participate in Media Training.

This training, delivered by the team from Font PR, is designed to provide the tools necessary to enable participants to better understand how the media works and how to liaise and manage media communications, including journalistic techniques, developing media relationships, ethics, crisis communication, media releases and interviews.

The training will be held remotely throughout September and October.

The training will consist of 3 x 2-hour sessions. Once the recipients of the training have been confirmed, a poll will be issued to select the most suitable days and times for the training. The IFA/AFG will provide funding to cover registration for eligible applicants.

These scholarships are offered via a grant from the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources - Leadership in Agricultural Industries Fund to develop leadership and communication skills in early career professionals (up to age 35yrs). Please note that due to the terms of the grant, any Commonwealth salary employee is excluded from applying.

Applications close 9.00 am Tuesday 25 August 2020.
