    Teaching news: a webinar for secondary teachers
    Free webinar, 23 November, 16:00-16:45
    Teaching students how to research and write news stories and evaluate the stories they encounter is crucial to turning them into engaged and critically thinking citizens. In this free webinar, we'll take you through ways you can embed media literacy throughout the curriculum, as well as give you access to some exclusive resources not available to the general public. We'll also preview our popular virtual workshops that we deliver to schools and colleges across the UK.
    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.
    Insight into journalism conference series
    We regularly organise and host half and full day conferences which provide a unique opportunity for Media and English teachers to find out how an international news organisation works and gain experience, skills and resources that can be used in the classroom. Details of our next conference will be posted on this page later in the year.
    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. Contact us if you would like to discuss arranging bespoke training for your organisation.
    Amazing, this is gold! Thank you.
    at Doing News conference
    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.
