Media Training

media trainingOne of the best ways of inspiring new volunteers to join your organisation is to share the stories of existing volunteers and the work they do.

Volunteer Centre Borders' Volunteering Development Officer, Fiona Scott, is a former Sports Editor with the Southern Reporter and has 20 years' experience of working in the media and as a PR consultant.

Fiona is passionate about helping organisations in the Third Sector to use the media in the best way possible and is now offering training on topics such as the changing face of local press and using digital media to the best effect and then will run a workshop to put some of the theories into practice.

The training will take place in Galashiels on Wednesday November 28th from 10am - 2pm with a light lunch provided. Cost is £20 per person.

We are looking to organise further training sessions around the Borders so if you would like to register an interest in either the event on November 28th, or a future training date, please let us know by contacting Brian Hitchcock at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
