Alongside our scheduled courses, the CIJ offers bespoke training programmes. As part of these packages, we work closely with editors, research teams and their managers to understand the skills they currently possess, the skills they know they need, and the areas where our training can help in ways they may not be aware of. Regardless of the size of your organisation and the experience of your teams, we can put together a training programme that will enhance your investigations, save you time and increase your impact.

Story-Based Inquiry treats investigative journalism as an integrated process focused on producing an original story. Based on a process developed by Mark Lee Hunter, a leading investigator and academic, and Luuk Sengers, a journalist and lecturer, this is a well-established methodology that offers practical training in producing an evidence-based narrative.
