IRE’s grant-funded, customized training program, Total Newsroom Training, is returning for its 10th year and applications are now open.
IRE’s experienced trainers will come to selected U.S.-based newsrooms either virtually or in person for two days of intense, in-house investigative training – at no cost. Spots in the program are limited and awarded on a competitive basis.
Preference will be given to newsrooms in rural areas and smaller cities, smaller newsrooms in large markets, and newsrooms founded and run by those coming from and serving historically marginalized communities. Training must be completed by September 2023.
Total Newsroom Training is meant to help small to medium-sized news organizations, and IRE customizes training based on the needs of the organization. These sessions can include web tools, background techniques, and hands-on data analysis training.
The program is designed to increase the ability of news organizations to provide watchdog and enterprise coverage for their communities and to produce work that can lead to change and improvements.
The newsroom must be committed to allowing a significant portion of its staff to attend the full two days of training and to tracking their progress after the training. The winning newsrooms will attend a webinar later in the year to showcase their work. The deadline to apply is December 9, 2022. Learn more about the program and how to apply.
