Testimonials

“Fantastic interactive training to help build information literacy, and core critical thinking skills. This should be a mandatory part of compulsory education, and core training for organisations to help navigate an increasingly rich information age.” Alan Hook — Associate Head of School, School of Communication and Media, Ulster University
“A group of staff from Libraries NI recently received a practical introduction to fact checking. It highlighted the important role of FactCheckNI in supporting civic participation. Staff got a toolkit to develop their own skills and an insight into why this is such an important topic, all delivered in an engaging way by a knowledgeable tutor.” Trisha Ward — Head of Service, Libraries NI
“I asked Orna from FactCheckNI to speak to my young journalists about the importance of making sure they are working with correct information and putting accurate information out to the public. Orna delivered a lively, vibrant, informative and engaging session for students in a warm and friendly way, using real life examples, making it all relatable to them. They loved the session and I know they will carry what they learned that day on into their careers as future journalists.” Leona O’Neill — Lecturer in Journalism, Ulster University
“Orna delivered a virtual FactCheckNI training session for our group of Future Leaders — the content, pace and delivery were exceptional. The session was interesting, engaging and provided food for thought as well as really handy resources. Lots learned in a short space of time. Cannot recommend this training more!” Fiona Corvan — Project Manager, Holywell Trust
