    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.
    Following the informative and interesting training session, we felt confident in delivering a successful day of activities, focused on career, researching, writing, and editing skills. Students responded really well to the variety of tasks and enjoyed the challenges they faced over the course of the day. Overall, a really positive experience!

    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.

    Really useful ideas at a time when our young people need to be equipped with the skills to question what they are reading. Really informative and great that it was packed with info!
