Media Training Masters for Individual School Leaders

This course covers the same material used in the full-day media training courses. The difference is that it’s focused specifically on you, and some, or all of the training is conducted online at a time convenient to you. It is also spread out over an agreed period of time.

Participants have 12 months access to the online course (see our online course page for more on this). That takes care of the theory required to succeed at media interviews. When you have completed each section of that course, you come together with Pete at either at Media Training NZ in Christchurch, or online to put that theory into practice.

This includes preparing media messages and sound bites as well as conducting mock interviews of potential scenarios you may face. This part of the course is specifically tailored for School Leaders. These interviews are then watched back and critiqued, before the next required skill becomes the focus. The standard package involves five sessions of one and a half hours, but this is flexible for the Budget conscious. This is a great option for those who can’t take a full day off work, prefer learning at a slower pace, or others conscious of mock interviews in-front of their peers.

Pete provided a professional, thought provoking and  totally practical training session on how to work effectively with the media. Anyone in a leadership role needs to hear the messages that Pete is sharing. We never know when that phone call or TV camera will arrive. Definitely an investment in peace of mind.
