Safety Training Fund

La formation à la sécurité est d'une importance capitale pour les journalistes indépendants qui prévoient de travailler dans des environnements hostiles.

The Trust’s Safety Training Fund makes Hostile Environment and First Aid Training courses affordable and more accessible to freelancers so they can stay safe in the field.

This fund is currently closed to applications. Please check back soon for updates. 

A propos du fonds.

The Rory Peck Safety Training Fund enables freelance journalists to gain the essential skills and knowledge needed to work in difficult and potentially dangerous situations. Launched in 2000, the Training Fund has given hundreds of bursaries to freelance journalists, photographers, camera operators and filmmakers to allow them to take part in a training course with one of our trusted course providers. Courses teach them to assess risk and spot danger, handle a crisis, support others and give vital first aid.

Qui peut postuler ?

Pour être admissible, vous devez avoir travaillé en tant que pigiste dans le domaine de la collecte de nouvelles et/ou des affaires courantes pendant au moins 18 mois. Le nombre de bourses est limité et la priorité est accordée aux freelances dont le travail les amène fréquemment dans des environnements hostiles, ainsi qu'à ceux dont l'affectation est confirmée.

Comment puis-je poser ma candidature ?

To apply for the Rory Peck Safety Training Fund, you must complete an online application form when the fund is open. Note that you will also need to include the contact details of two referees who can endorse your application and vouch for your work as a freelancer.

Combien de temps faut-il pour traiter une demande ?

On receipt of your application form and supporting documents, it can take between one and three weeks to process. We recommend that you advise your referees in advance that they will be contacted by the Trust.

Quel fournisseur de cours devrais-je choisir ?

The Trust works with 10 course providers. You must take your training with one of them, but it is up to you to select the one that best fits your needs. We recommend researching the courses of each training provider before deciding which one is right for you.

Voici quelques éléments à prendre en compte :

  • les dates des cours
  • emplacement
  • price (some providers reduce their rates for Rory Peck Trust recipients, others offer specially discounted courses at different times of the year)
  • le contenu et la prestation des cours

Please note that funds are limited and grants will be given on a case-by-case basis.
