The Thomson Reuters Foundation (TRF) is pleased to launch the Partnership Against Child Exploitation (PACE) Radio Journalism Training Course to identify the most effective strategies to combat the exploitation of children in the worst forms of child labour, through a range of initiatives. This three-day course will be based in Addis Ababa and will run from Monday 4th to Wednesday 6th July 2022.
The course will be based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Participants will come together for three days of full-time training. Training days will begin at 8:30am EAT and conclude at 5:30pm each day. Participants traveling from outside of Addis Ababa will be supported with a transport and accommodation allowance provided by TRF. Other allowances may be made available to participants based in Addis Ababa depending on their distance from the training venue. Lunch and refreshments will be provided to all participants during the course.
The course will be delivered through a combination of in-person facilitation, individual exercises, and group work. Depending on international travel restrictions it is possible some sessions may be delivered via video link. The course will be delivered in English. However, they recognize that English will not be the first language for most/all participants, and support will be available by Amharic-speaking members of the training team. While they expect all participants to be proficient in English, this is not a language-training course. The emphasis is on good reporting, writing and journalism rather than English grammar.
