Media training is available to staff who are likely to be called upon as regular media spokespeople or as key commentators.
The Media Relations team uses an external agency to deliver media training. Priority is given to academics or senior staff working in areas that are regularly sought out by media contacts.
Staff members who receive media training will be expected to engage in media interviews as appropriate. The Media Relations team will arrange interviews in consultation with staff, and will always seek to organise mutually convenient timings with academics and media contacts.
