24 hours in the life of a newsroom

24 hours in the life of a newsroom is the website the ESJ Lille and CFI have created to help journalists all over the world train in agreement with international standards. We have developed four series of practical index card to help you get a precise idea of how exactly a day goes in a TV, radio or a web newsroom. These cards are available for free on the website in many languages. They are representative of the CFI and the ESJ Lille’s skills when it comes to training journalists. They were written by long time pros, used to training both journalism students and journalists. It’s a free tool that’s available to all. Don’t hesitate to pass the link to your friends and colleagues. The ESJ and the CFI have decided to create those cards and have them translated in various languages. You might want to join such an initiative and suggest a new language. For obvious editorial responsibility issues, we would be pleased to accompany you in producing that kind of work and leading such an addition. If you’re interested in that type of project, please send us an e-mail: contact@24hdansuneredaction.com

Created in 1924, the Ecole Supérieure de Journalism de Lille is among the best journalism schools in Europe.

Initial journalism training remains the ESJ’s first mission. The students selected each year through an exam receive over two years “polymedia” training (TV, radio, print, web, wire). Such a selection is open to foreign students provided they have at least achieved a 3-year university degree.

We also teach a Master in Media Management, open to francophone media managers.
Since 1992, we have chosen to use our expertise in journalism and media to help our fellow journalists and international partners through the creation of ESJ International.
Every year we put our knowledge to use for a selected amount of projects all over the world. This helps us guarantee the quality of the services we provide and give each partnership our full attention.
