Media training

Our media training courses have been specifically designed to provide senior health and public sector professionals with the necessary skills and techniques to get your message across clearly.

As a trusted NHS and public sector partner, we are ideally placed to deliver these courses in your offices. Our media team has in-depth knowledge of healthcare and the wider public sector, and a wealth of experience in broadcast, print and online journalism, to prepare you for handling tough questions.

So, whether you require practical tips on speaking to the media, want to hone your radio and television interview techniques, or develop comprehensive crisis management skills, make MLCSU your first port of call.

Why not have a read of our Media Training Flyer?

Courses start from £1,000 for a half day workshop for four participants or £2,000 for a full day workshop for eight participants (excluding travel expenses).

Our team will deliver practical courses that help your senior leaders to:

  • Understand how the media operates
  • Confidently deal with radio and TV interviews, learning how to avoid potential pitfalls and handle difficult questions
  • Understand the importance of key messages
  • Learn how to maximise positive PR opportunities

Don’t forget though we can tailor courses specifically for you, so if you just want your staff to learn about how the media operates and how they can help you promote your organisation or you want to know what to do if a crisis hits – we can help.

You will be trained by one of our experienced senior media specialists, who will guide you through a broadcast interview and give tailored feedback.

Open media training courses

Don’t want to commit to a full media training session for your organisation? Book a place for your senior leaders on one of our open media training sessions.

Each half day session costs only £315 per person, with a maximum of four participants per session (price includes 10% discount). Our media expert, along with an experienced camera operator, will deliver the training and all delegates will have a copy of our media awareness guide to take home.
