As part of the Debt Reduction and Development Contract (C2D) between France and the Ivory Coast, the Franco-Ivorian Hub for Education (Hub-FIE) selected the project presented by INA and its Ivorian partner, the Institute des Sciences et Techniques de la Communication (ISTC Polytechnique).
The aim of this new project is to create a training course in the Ivory Coast that will lead to a qualification as a global media video journalist. The course will be designed mainly for practising journalists and communicators who are keen to make the move towards a 360° environment: television, radio and online, including business newspapers and the trade press.
In the age of digital TV, and at a time when media groups are developing and consolidated in Africa, this training will be used to supply the media with high-quality local content. Furthermore, the course is fully in line with the robust economic role that the creative and cultural industries are playing in Africa today.
Drawing on its own and ISTC’s educational capacities, INA also asked France Médias Monde to provide its expertise in practical reporting in Africa. This intensive course will be based on teaching focusing on practical and field work for greater efficiency and to achieve the required high professional skills level.
See you at the start of the 2021 academic year in Abidjan for the first session of this new training!
Faced with the Covid-19 pandemic, INA and its partners are demonstrating their agility and commitment as they adapt to this unprecedented situation. Working sessions are now being carried out remotely to study the feasibility of the training project, and to develop its programme and economic model.
