There's nothing like combining theory and practice, and that's exactly what our traineeship does. Everything you learn in the seminars can be directly applied to the internships that follow.
DW's international traineeship takes you through the ABCs of journalism - everything from theory basics to live reporting and multimedia storytelling. The 18-month multimedia traineeship is for online, radio and television, and comprises:
• six months of theory and practice-oriented seminar blocks held in English and German and conducted by working journalists
• nine months of placements with various DW editorial departments in Bonn, Berlin and one of our foreign bureaus in Brussels, Washington or Moscow
• a one-month placement with DW's partner broadcaster, Deutschlandradio
• 35 days of vacation
The seminar blocks alternate with the placements so that you're able to directly apply what you've just learned.
At the end of each traineeship, participants officially present a multimedia project which they've developed and produced as a team.
