The TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) Journalism Initiative works closely with TVET journalism courses offered in five Pacific countries. The Initiative identifies the need to strengthen the professionalism of journalism and the provision of high quality entry-level journalism training. The activity has delivered five course modules, with 36 original pieces of content included in the modules, and an innovative teaching guide for the TVET trainers. Each of the five modules has 28 session plans. Two workshops were organised in Suva, Fiji with participation from at least four of the five TVETs represented at each of the workshops (January 2015 and June 2015). These workshops focused on innovative teaching methodology and familiarising the TVET representatives with the new modules.
This Impact Assessment briefing summarises the impact of the initiative on the TVET trainers. The Impact Assessment is based on qualitative research administered with the TVET representatives to determine the key areas of impact for the initiative. The initiative is implemented by Telinga Media and is a part of the Pacific Media Assistance Scheme (PACMAS) funded by Australian aid.
