MEDIA TRAINING

What does media training involve?

Parents’ Voice are planning on holding a free media training session for interested parents in the second half of 2022, dates are still yet to be decided.

The training session will introduce attendees to the media industry, explain how Parents’ Voice and journalists work together, and provide interview tips and practice scenarios.

There will be a limited amount of spaces available for parents from each state.

If you’re interested in becoming a parent advocate and representing Parents’ Voice in the media, make sure to sign-up for our eNewsletter so that you don’t miss the announcement of our next session.

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.
