Investigative Journalism

Investigative Journalism

Investigative Journalism

You won’t need previous television experience to take part in the Dispatches Investigative Journalism Training Scheme. But you will need a good eye for detail and an instinct for a good story. We’re looking for people who know how to investigate. You might be a lawyer, doctor, police officer or accountant. Similarly, you could be working in print journalism. Whatever your background, this is a chance for people with solid professional experience to transfer their skills and experience to work in investigative broadcast journalism.

If you’re a recent graduate or don’t have the relevant professional background we’re looking for, you might like to consider our MA in Investigative Journalism at DeMontfort University (DMU).

What you’ll need

You’ll need either a background in a professional role which has a significant investigative component or, if you’re a print or online journalist, at least one year’s professional experience. Whichever path you’ve taken so far, you’ll need to demonstrate a clear understanding of what makes a strong investigative story. We’ll also be interested in your ideas for new stories and areas to investigate. You may be asked to relocate for the duration of your training.

Applications are now closed.
