Age: 7-10 | AM
Age: 11-14 | PM
Cost: £162 (Early-Bird: £182)
A fantastic opportunity for budding journalists to experience the many different methods of journalistic media in the 21st century. From written articles to photo journalism, this course will give you many of the skills required to investigate, plan and deliver interesting articles on the local area. We will also learn about some inspirational journalists who have changed the course of history through the stories they have uncovered and consider what stories still need more research in the 21st century. We hope to be able to visit a local newspaper to see all of this in action. The course is perfect for those who love digging up the dirt or just want to improve their communication skills over the summer.
Classroom based courses will be limited to a maximum of 12 pupils. Pupils will be socially distanced within the classroom and will be asked to bring their own personal equipment. Pupils will sit at the same desk each day, and any ICT equipment will be labelled so the pupils use the same device all week. Classrooms will be supplied with antiseptic wipes for any shared equipment.
