Applications Open for CIJ Masterclass 2021
We are now accepting applications for the 2021 iteration of our Masterclass programme. It is designed to provide guidance, support and skills to early-career journalists who face structural barriers to entering the investigative journalism profession.
While we hope to include some in-person elements, at present we are planning for all the sessions to run online. This will include at least six 2-hour workshops/lectures. The exact dates are to be confirmed, but will run during September and October 2021.
The deadline for applications is 5pm BST, Thurs 5 Aug.
Participants in the Investigative Masterclass Programme should be at the early stages of their journalistic career.
We intend the masterclasses to help those who have faced barriers to becoming investigative journalists to overcome these barriers and begin their careers in the field.
Your application needs to make the case for your participation in the programme and your potential as an investigative journalist. Please ensure you show us your skills, your ideas and any experience or previous work you have published. You do not have to be a journalist already, but showing commitment and enthusiasm for the job is essential.
Applicants must be resident in the UK and successful participants will be required to attend all online classes in the course.
Only successful candidates will be contacted. We are not able to respond to unsuccessful applications.
