Become an Accredited Trainer

Trainers are bringing solutions journalism to newsrooms and journalists around the world.

SJN's Train-the-Trainers program is for journalism trainers, editors/reporters, media experts and journalism school educators interested in (or already) leading solutions journalism training for others.

During five online sessions held over the course of two weeks, the group works together to come up with ideas and strategies for teaching solutions journalism: rigorous reporting on how people are responding to problems. The program kicks off with the official solutions journalism training, which leads to an exploration of how to teach what solutions journalism is, why it matters and how to practice it (and teach it) in particular contexts. The program also digs into the four criteria of solutions journalism, case studies of worldwide practices and exercises that will help participants teach journalists and newsrooms how to engage meaningfully and embrace the practice. Finally, the group works together to set training goals and outlines to help each participant become a successful solutions journalism trainer for their newsroom, students or communities of journalists.
