Introduction to the news media
The EMC is independent and impartial, with no affiliation or leaning towards any other organisation, and
it is not our role to promote an individual person or institution, but we are committed to promoting better exposure of education research to the media and the public, and we understand well that dealing with the media can be daunting to anyone who has never or only rarely had to.
EMC staff have the broadcast and journalistic experience in education to work with researchers and their press teams to offer media advice, coaching or training to researchers and academics who would like to gain more confidence dealing with journalists, improving their media communication skills and strengthening the impact of their research.
