Professional development

There is huge lacking of professional training for journalists in Bangladesh. Most media houses too do not provide professional trainings to their staff. Usually, journalists learn as they go with their profession, mostly having assistance from their senior colleagues in the newsroom. However, there are some non-government organisations providing journalists with limited training courses.

The Press Institute of Bangladesh (PIB), an autonomous organisation under the Ministry of Information, organizes trainings for journalists on different issues, undertakes research projects on various aspects of media and mass communication and their impacts, and publishes books, journals, booklets etc.
