Science Communication Training
Our engaging and interactive Science Communication Workshops cover a range of topics in our 1-2 day workshops and are designed to help scientists understand why and how to share their science with non-scientists.
Workshops build on up-to-date science communication research as well as practical success stories, and can be tailored to focus on specific audiences, for example the media, policy makers, schools, youth, the “general” public etc., or can provide a broad introduction to communicating science to a variety of audiences.
We cover topics like:
- The value of communication and outreach
- Identifying your audience
- Reducing/eliminating jargon
- Crafting an elevator pitch
- The value, and mechanics, of storytelling
- Drafting your message
- Practice through role playing
- Communication channels
- How to communicate with youth, schools, the media, policy makers, the “general public”, and non-experts vital to your career like other scientists and grant organisations
We can combine science communication training with more in-depth communication skills for scientists, and can tailor our training if you have specific needs or audiences that you want to reach.

Science communication training online
Most of our science communication training and communication skills workshops take place “live”, but we live in the 21st century and one of the questions that we’re regularly asked is “Do you have the course online?”
Until recently, the answer was “no”, but as of the end of 2018, the answer is “it’s coming”! We’ll be launching our Online Science Communication Training programme in March 2019.
If you’d like to be notified of the course launch or of pilot programmes, send us a short note using our contact form and we’ll be in touch.
If you'd like to discuss science communication training, coaching, our communication skills workshops, or something related but different, get in touch.
