A great deal of news is “conflict” based and journalists are participants in the conflicts they cover. Though they may make every effort to be “objective,” this is difficult at best. Complex conflicts are full of pitfalls for journalists, but the more one understands what is really going on in a conflict, and the role of the conflict journalist, the better the coverage can be.
If you were lucky enough to have someone who helped you along the way, then you know first-hand the value of our Conflict Reporting Guide course programme. Along with Hostile Environment Ltd (HET) from Andover of the United Kingdom, I will take a moment to help you reflect on your educational and career journey. I will be your inspirational teacher and your co-worker who will show you the ropes of your educational and career pathway to conflict reporting.
Our programme delivers development for adults and students to get involved, succeed, and excel in their conflict reporting journey safely.
Hostile environments exist in many emerging markets, which are normally undeveloped economies situated in countries often characterized by political conflict, high levels of corruption, weak law enforcement and extensive competitive malpractice. In partnership with Hostile Environment Training Ltd in the United Kingdom, VX Media Ltd will provide two weeks of training that is designed to help prepare for and mitigate risks and challenges inherent in operating in unfamiliar and hostile environments.
Upon completion of the Hostile Environment Awareness and First Aid Training (HEFAT) course, you will be better prepared and equipped to manage the threats that may result in the loss of life, limb and liberty. Apart from practical survival skills and knowledge in how to cope with a stressful hostage or a disaster situation, you will also learn the importance of information security. The training combines both theoretical and practical elements and is delivered to you (as an individual or) your employees (as a company) by highly experienced professionals.
In our programme, you have the opportunity to connect with our exclusive skills and knowledge. This is a programme also for individuals (protégés) like you who need or want the same skills and advantages to progress in work, skill level, or on-field performance.
Hostile Environment Training Ltd and VX Media Ltd are experienced experts who will guide you in developing your skills, strategies and capabilities, enabling you to tackle the next hurdle more effectively with or without our presence.
