Media Literacy Ambassador programme resources

All you need to run the MLA programme in your classroom

MLA teacher guide
These resources are based on our experience of delivering the Media Literacy Ambassador programme to schools and colleges across central England, with above average levels of free school meals, English as an additional language and special educational needs. Your school or college can independently deliver the Media Literacy Ambassador programme by downloading our teacher guide and resources.
The guide will provide you with a model for scaling media literacy and building resilience to mis and disinformation across your school or college. The resources are aimed at students aged 14-18. You can follow the whole programme, or you can pick and choose a selection of activities and resources to incorporate into your teaching.

The guide includes:
  • Full lesson plans designed by educators

  • The benefits of teaching media literacy through peer learning

  • Guidance in setting up the programme

  • Guidance on collaborating with colleagues and your senior leadership team

  • How to timetable the programme

  • How to integrate the programme across the curriculum

  • Media Literacy Ambassadors in class

    These include resources to support the three Media Literacy Ambassador sessions and extension exercises.
    This project was funded by the Department of Science and Technology and included independent evaluation conducted by the National Literacy Trust. It was guided by a series of participating teacher and youth panels which informed the iteration of the programme.
