The Young Reporters Scheme gives students a taste of the newsroom. It is difficult to secure work placements in the media and this scheme gives students a chance to start their ‘writing career’ under the guidance of professional journalists. The scheme is structured as near to real life as possible as students are given deadlines to work to and are encouraged to take and upload photographs.
As Ella Thompson 13H, one the ten Eltham Hill Students enrolled onto the scheme, comments: ‘wanting to pursue journalism as a career, I am so excited to be able to get an initial taste of this world’.
Congrats to Ella Thompson, Sevi Osmanogullari, Charlotte Griffin, Michaela Smith, Yasmin Thompson, Ursula Karki, Ellie Gray, Amelie Tu, Mia Walker and Riju Prasi for being accepted onto the scheme.
