The digital era has transformed investigative journalism. As information has become more easily accessible, holding the powerful to account is no longer a task restricted to reporters in newsrooms. A generation of 'citizen journalists' is now breaking major scoops across the globe, many equipped with no more than a laptop and a nose for a story.
In this intensive, weekend course, two of the UK's leading investigative journalists will give students the skills needed to reach the next step.
Paul Lewis and Heather Brooke will teach the secrets of their trade in a series of interactive workshops and skill-based sessions. Two previous dates for the course were sold out, with the programme proving useful to journalists looking to sharpen their tools, as well as curious amateurs, lawyers, regulators, investigators, bloggers, press officers and campaigners.
