Safety Training Fund

Mafunzo ya usalama ni muhimu sana kwa waandishi wa habari wa kujitegemea wanaopanga kufanya kazi katika mazingira ya uadui.

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. 

Kuhusu mfuko.

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.

Nani anaweza kuomba?

Ili kuhitimu, utahitaji kufanya kazi kama freelancer katika kuandika habari na / au mambo ya sasa kwa muda wa chini wa miezi 18. Idadi ya bursaries ni mdogo na kipaumbele hutolewa kwa wafanyakazi ambao kazi yao mara nyingi huwapeleka katika mazingira ya uadui, na kwa wale walio na kazi iliyothibitishwa.

Ninawezaje kuomba?

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.

Inachukua muda gani kuchakata programu?

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.

Ni mtoaji gani wa kozi ninapaswa kuchagua?

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.

Mambo unayoweza kutaka kuzingatia ni pamoja na:

  • tarehe za kozi
  • Mahali
  • price (some providers reduce their rates for Rory Peck Trust recipients, others offer specially discounted courses at different times of the year)
  • maudhui ya kozi na utoaji

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