    CPD - Media literacy resources for secondary pupils with SEND
    Tuesday 7th February, 4:15pm - 5pm, free
    Along with our sister programme, NewsWise, and funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, we have adapted and produced resources to provide a suite of cross-curricular media literacy resources for secondary SEND students.

    We will be holding a CPD session with tips for using the resources and teaching news and critical literacy on Tuesday 4 October 4:15pm - 5pm. Open to all teachers working with secondary SEND students.
    CPD with the English & Media Centre: Doing News
    Friday 30th June, all day
    This full day course offers a unique opportunity for both Media Studies and English teachers to experience a typical day in a news organisation with 24-hour, worldwide coverage. The course will develop Media teachers’ understanding of the newspaper industry and English teachers’ awareness of writing and responding to broadsheet newspapers.

    Attendees will hear from leading journalists and editors, develop their production skills by taking part in a news editing session, and participate in both Media and English good practice workshops run by EMC.

    Tickets can be booked via the English & Media Centre.
    Initial teacher training
    We deliver a popular 40 minute webinar for English, History and Citizenship trainee teachers on critical literacy and teaching news. During the webinar we model our Fake or for real workshop and equip participants with skills, resources and ideas to teach the session with their practice schools. Contact us if you would like to book a session.
    Bespoke training
    On request we can organise tailored news, journalism and critical literacy training for a range of educators and to support specific subjects or initiatives. We recently ran a CPD session for a teaching department who wanted to run a news day in their school. Contact us if you would like to discuss arranging bespoke training for your organisation.
    Resources to support students
    We offer a range of resources to support and embed news and media literacy across the secondary curriculum, including advice, tips and downloadable material.
    The CPD session helped us to deliver a successful newspaper day that students really enjoyed.

    after a bespoke CPD webinar
    A brilliant morning. This is exactly what a 21st Century PGCE should be delivering. The trainees found it really useful for their classroom practice and for extending their thinking on media literacy.

    Very concise and timely. Lots of ideas to structure projects!
