CIJ is a registered charity and we do not make profits on our courses, all money raised is used to organise training at prices well below the market rate. Ordinarily, ticket sales pay for organising #CIJSummer. Due to this year’s scaled-down online format, we cannot charge for the conference in the ordinary way, so we will offer a mix of free talks and paid-for training to cover costs.
#CIJSummer 2020 Online speakers and trainers will be paid a training fee, as preparation for online teaching takes time, skill and effort. We are committed to supporting journalists and trainers in these difficult times.
Please consider making a small donation (recommended amounts: £10, £5 or an amount of your choice) to support the work of the CIJ during these difficult times. –> DONATE HERE.

Thank you!
