MEDIA TRAINING

What does media training involve?

Parents’ Voice are currently looking to recruit parent members to represent us in the media and are offering the selected parents a free online media training session on the 14 July 2021 (during business hours). The training session will introduce you to the media industry, explain how Parents’ Voice and journalists work together, and provide you with interview tips and practice role-plays.

There are a limited number of spaces available for parent members in each state.  

Don’t miss out, click here to register you interest in becoming a spokesperson for Parents’ Voice.

What do media trained members do?

Parents who complete the media training session will be added to an exclusive email list that will keep them informed on upcoming media opportunities. As a media trained member you may be occasionally called on to be the designated spokesperson for a media release, or in response to a current issue in the news.

When a media opportunity arises, Parents’ Voice staff will liaise between you and the journalist, and brief you to ensure that you are comfortable with the topic and have our key messages and background information on hand.

You may find yourself talking to a range of media, this could include a reporter from your local newspaper or a well known national radio presenter. We also want members to act as advocates in their communities and if you feel media training could help you achieve this goal, Parents’ Voice would love to help!

Our members are our best ambassadors because real experience and advice from other parents is the most effective way of discovering more about children’s food and physical activity issues.

If you have any questions about our upcoming media training, please contact us at hello@parentsvoice.org.au.

We’ll be conducting media training for parents in July 2021. Express your interest below.
