Communications training tailored for your organisation

Set your team up for success with our practical, confidence-building strategic communications training.

Every organisation is different, with its own set of priorities and challenges. We work closely with you to develop training programmes that are perfectly aligned with your objectives. Our training is pitched at the right level and designed to be relevant to challenges and opportunities non-profits face. We understand what you need, because we have worked with hundreds of charities, and because we are a charity too!

Why choose Media Trust? 

Up-to-date training from tried and tested experts

Many of our trainers bring years of experience as former journalists from renowned media outlets such as the BBC, Channel 4, ITV, and Sky. Their insights into the latest trends and best practices ensure that our training remains innovative and relevant in today’s fast-paced media landscape, dealing with challenges like the rise of AI, and the turbulent political landscape.

Rigorous quality assurance

With 30 years of experience to draw on, we know how to get the most from your training budget, with plenty of opportunity for you to collaborate in the design of the sessions and provide feedback on how it went.

Flexible locations and group sizes

We offer both in-person and online training which can be delivered as two-hour, half-day or full-day sessions for a discounted cost.

Clear pricing structure

Prices start at £700 + VAT.

Low-cost/no-cost solutions

Our trainers are not going to sell you high-cost tools and strategies but work with you to identify free or very low-cost ways to achieve your comms goals.

Experience dealing with complex issues

Our trainers have trained organisations who cover sensitive areas such as domestic abuse and race inequality.

Specialise in intersectional storytelling

We understand no one lives one issue lives. We work on complex challenges and our training reflects our inclusive approach.

Sandra put everyone – regardless of previous media experience – right at ease. The filmed interviews were a great learning tool and our colleagues feel much more confident speaking to the media than they had previously. We couldn’t recommend Media Trust more highly.
