The Sierra Leone Broadcasting Corporation has ended a five days training conducted to capacitate broadcast journalists from different media outlets in Sierra Leone.

The training which started on Monday, 26th January, 2015 was held at the corporation’s broadcasting house, New England Ville in Freetown.

Deputy Director of Media and Public Affairs at the SLBC, Samuel Valcacel said the purpose of the training was to ensure that broadcast journalists were capacitated with new and modern broadcasting skills, which he noted most of them lack.

He said the objective of the training was to ensure that broadcast journalists in Sierra Leone where up to international standards of journalism. This, Valcacel said would greatly help the country’s media landscape

Also, Valcarcel went on to state that capacitating media practitioners and the media landscapes is part of the SLBCs mandate, assuring that such trainings would continue in future.

The Deputy Director of Media and Public Affairs hoped that participants had learnt new skills and techniques of broadcast journalism, having completed the training exercise.

He revealed that the training was the beginning of several trainings that would be conducted by the corporation for journalists in the country.

At the end of the training, participants expressed thanks and appreciation to the SLBC for conducting the training and asked that the corporation continues such trainings in future.
