Our flagship 5-day course

In our flagship 5-day course trainees are taught how to investigate corporate accounts, offshore activity and corporate corruption. Our training covers where to find documents, how to analyse them and other practical tools to help uncover financial secrecy.

A combination of guidance from senior practitioners and a workshop approach gives trainees the basis to investigate financial corruption as well as offering the opportunity to network with other journalists and activists.

From 2018, our course includes a hands-on data security module delivered by Free Press Unlimited, as part of the new MoneyTrail consortium which also includes Journalismfund.eu and Oxfam Novib.

Our next 5-day course will be held in London from 17th to 21st September 2018. Subsequent courses will be held in Jakarta in February 2019 and in London in November 2019.


Bursaries are available for journalists from the developing world and eastern Europe. Bursaries cover visa fees, travel, accommodation and per diems for food and travel in London. Due to the limited number of bursaries, applicants will be selected on their track record in investigative journalism. As we tend to be over-subscribed some candidates will be placed on a waiting list for our 2019 courses.
