Description

THIS IS AN ONS ONLY EVENT

Handling media enquiries

Probably you didn't opt for a career in statistics because you wanted to talk to journalists? But at ONS, that is part of the role when you are the named contact on a bulletin or even just answering a colleague's phone in their absence. This course is here to prepare you for that responsibility, providing you with the knowledge and skills to be confident in telling your story, getting your key points across and yes, what to avoid saying!

Pre-course:

  • Part of the course will involve you taking questions on a bulletin of your choice. Please email a link to the bulletin to Helena Hird no later than 5 working days before the course.
  • As part of the discussion on what makes a news story, please bring an example of a media story that has caught your eye in the past week (can be from social media, media website, newspaper, TV news)

If you have any accessibility requirements, or any queries regarding this event, please contact Helena.Hird@ons.gov.uk
