Course information 

New training solutions for the broadcast sector
Worldwide, the broadcast industry is undergoing radical change. The pace of technological innovation is breathtaking. The digitalisation of information is forging new types of media. Private broadcasting companies, local, national, regional or global, are mushrooming. Competition is increasing. Professional mobility is on the rise and new staff is employed every day. Moreover, there are a growing number of non-traditional media-professionals (e.g. from non-governmental organisations, international organisations and national ministries.)

These changes have brought about a reassessment of the important contribution of training to the viability of broadcasting organisations. At the same time, however, the nature and pace of the changes make heavy demands on the existing training resources of broadcasting organisations. These resources are faced with a run on their services, a growing demand for a wider range of training topics, an increasingly heterogeneous client group and a clamouring for new types of training delivery. And, notwithstanding the renewed interest, budgets allocated to training are under pressure.

In the light of these developments, trainers, training organisers and educators, working in or for the broadcasting industry in developing countries, have to review, explore and exploit traditional and new methods of organisation, design and delivery of training activities. New training solutions are needed.
