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'. She will then run a workshop to put some of the theories into practice.

The half day workshop taking place in Galashiels on Wednesday November 28th is now FULLY BOOKED, but we have a waiting list and are looking to organise further training sessions around the Borders.
