We all know the media can be a force for good when responsible reporting practises are adhered to by journalists. Sadly, the Muslim community has to deal with the backlash resulting from inaccurate and sometimes biased reporting. CfMM aims to change that.
In order to empower Muslim communities to proactively engage with the media, we offer various types of training.
Media Complaints Training
Our aim is to help individuals and community organisations to reduce inaccurate and misleading information on Muslims and Islam in the media. Our half-day Media Complaints Training takes participants through the basic skills needed to make effective complaints to both print and broadcast media watchdogs. The sessions are practical with hands on experience using real examples.
Media Interview Skills
This one day training session will give your organisation’s spokesperson the basic skills needed to be interviewed. We show you how to plan your interview, communicate your main messages and respond to difficult questions. The day includes practice radio and TV interviews with feedback.
Press Release Writing Workshops
This half-day workshop will go through the main techniques for writing sharp, effective press releases that will grab journalists’ attention and get positive media coverage for your event, project or story. Includes practical workshop and feedback session.
