Practical, expert training to get the most of the media and social media

View our current courses.

Media Wales Training delivers unique training to organisations in working with the media and improving business communications skills, including using social and digital media and marketing communications.

The training can be delivered in your own offices or in a central location in Cardiff, Newport, or Swansea. Courses are available in English and in Welsh.

The pace of developments in the press, online news and broadcast industries is leaving many organisations without the necessary skills to communicate with customers, users, opinion formers and potential funders.

“We are also finding that communicating is no longer the preserve of a public relations and/or press team but is being recognised as a role of all members of a company or organisation who may come into contact with the media and who can have direct access with their targeted audience through social and digital media,” said Media Wales Training Director Mike Smith.

“This is combined with pressure on budgets, with companies looking for more efficient ways of achieving their communications aims than, for example, paying external agencies for work that can be performed or supplemented by properly trained staff.”

Smith said that the most popular courses with clients, who range from Tata Steel, Royal Mint and small businesses to colleges, charities and trade unions, are those delivering hands-on, practical skills that can be used immediately. These include press release writing and writing for the web, using social and digital media in communications work, working with local, national and specialised media and improving interview skills.

These can been taken as half-day and full-day courses and can be tailored to your own industry sector or individual business.

He added, “These courses are designed to help companies, organisations and individuals work with the print, broadcast and online media and are based on delivery by expert tutors who are also working journalists. Ot trainers are also expert in using social media, marketing and presentation skills.”
