What We Do
The IAJ aims to create a better media environment through developing the skills of journalists and professional communicators by providing a complete set of seminars, short courses and longer term interventions. Both individuals and companies may develop through training tailored to their individual needs.
The Institute is certified by the Media & ICT Sector Education Training Authority (MICT-SETA). This means that companies who send people to us for training can claim back from their skills development levy, this translates to a 40 to 50 percent monetary return and staff members trained to international standards. The rebate is dependent on having a skills development plan in place.
The IAJ is a non-profit-making organisation, with a 100% certified BBBEE procurement status, and is run by a management team supervised by a governing board of media industry experts chaired by respected broadcast journalist and editor.
