It can be helpful to carry out a needs assessment prior to a training session. A needs assessment should help the trainer understand what safety training, if any, participants have previously had as well as providing them with information on what participants may want to cover in the course.
The materials in this section have been designed to accompany the four-day training curriculum which focuses on integrated physical, digital, and wellbeing strategies for managing risk as a woman journalist. The activities are designed to be learner centred and practical so that journalists are engaged in learning and acquire skills that will be useful for them when they go back to work. Based on real-life situations, the activities reflect the daily challenges that journalists and editors face when thinking about how to best protect themselves and others.
