SICHE to establish Media and Journalism School as early as 2007
Preparations for the establishment of a Media and Journalism School at the Solomon Islands College of Higher Education (SICHE) next year are well underway in Honiara.
A special Training of Trainers course was completed on Saturday for media workers and journalist who will teach the course. The trainers undertook a three weeks training on teaching methods at SICHE.
Those who will be teaching the course were selected from the country’s mainstream media organisations and other organisation that relates to the media industry. The three-week training was conducted to prepare trainers to teach the course.
Many trainers expressed confidence in teaching the course when their training was concluded on Saturday.
The media school is jointly funded by AusAID and UNESCO in collaboration with SICHE and the Media Association of Solomon Islands (MASI). The media school is expected to start at the middle of next year.
