Seminars of Internews Kazakhstan
Internews Kazakhtan in order to
support independent TV and radio stations and to strengthen
professional skills of media staff conducts trainings, workshops and
consultations on various fields of media activities.
The program of professional
training for Kazakhstani TV stations staff became the first project
of Internews Network in Kazakhstan. In 1992 in Almaty we conducted
the first trainings on the basics of newscasts production. Training
projects for independent radio stations have begun since 1996. In
1998 we conducted the first trainings for journalists working in
Kazakh, and now we make an effort to raise the creative level of
newscasts in Kazakh as the state language.
