Al Jazeera a training partnership

Posted by Hosam El Nagar


Thomson Foundation has supported the Al Jazeera Media Institute in Qatar since its 2004 inception, from advising on initial set-up and design to training journalists and managers on all aspects of media.

We have helped to develop a world-class media training centre that fulfils the requirements of an international broadcaster and other media organisations.

Start up

In the beginning we provided consultancy advice on equipping the centre and training its staff.

We now work with the centre to provide training for journalists and managers to enable them to succeed and thrive in a multimedia world.
