The first meeting of facilitators for the Perspektivy programme took place in June when six trainers from around Russia came together to discuss best practices in training.

The workshop, led by former Reuters journalist Anatoly Verbin, discussed the issues facing media around the world, and how the Perspektivy programme could play its part.

They also covered teaching and delivery methods, how to build courses, and how people learn and are energised, amongst other course components.

A number of these trainers will be involved in the first workshop for working journalists in September.
