Opportunity for basic journalism training for high school students in Kosovo

As part of the EU-supported project “Solidifying the Resilience of Kosovo’s Current and Future Journalists”, BIRN Kosovo is seeking students from Kosovo’s public high schools interested in undergoing training in media production, media literacy and tackling fake news.


In June, two training sessions from the same programme were held with a total of 35 high school students from Gjilan and Ferizaj. BIRN Kosovo will now organise eight additional training sessions for high school students with the aim of nurturing young talent by mentoring students in the production of videos, photos and articles. This will contribute to increased independence, transparency, accountability and civic engagement.The training sessions will introduce the students to journalism, including topics like journalistic language and concepts, reporting standards, photography tips, production materials for video content, video editing, investigative journalism, ethics and author’s rights.


At the end of each training session, youngsters from high schools across Kosovo will pitch their journalistic ideas, which the BIRN team will analyse before selecting a minimum of 60 videos and article ideas that will be published on the KallxoRinia online platform. The production process for all of these articles will be overseen by a team of BIRN Kosovo editors.
