Dealing with the media is an essential item in the school leaders’ toolkit. It may come more naturally than you think because school leaders have many of the skills to be a successful media communicator already. This course aims to give you the confidence to make the most of media opportunities and stay out of trouble in a crisis.

By the end of the session you will:

  • Have seen and heard examples of good practise
  • Have swapped media stories with others
  • Have had a chance to practise your skills
  • Take away some essential dos and don’ts
