  • session2009:05 Trainees today: Editors and Producers in 2020
    Training in media skills is an essential part of CIRCOM. Every year there are training schemes, such as the one taking place in Malta over the past 10 days. The trainees and the trainers show what they have been doing. This is important because those who are well trained by CIRCOM today become our industry leaders in the next decade.

  • session2110:15 The 2020 Answer: Skills for survival
    We may be very good at providing training in our stations but have we correctly divined what skills our staff will need in ten years from now? How can we find out what those skills should be? And it is not just production staff who need skills, so do managers: it’s called “leadership”. What leadership style from our station managers and leading executives will make our survival as regional public service broadcasters most likely? CIRCOM Regional has carried out its own skills survey market research from its members: find the results here.
