Enterprising Journalism

Newspapers frequently report that team-working, problem-solving and decision-making are the most sought-after skills employers demand. No-one knows that better than the reporters on those newspapers - all good journalists must have those skills.

In this special journalism challenge day your students will develop the essential communications skills that not only reporters need - but that all students will value, whether they go on to study at university or go straight into the workplace.

Run by former Daily Express Executive Features Editor, Ann Bird (Hyperlink), the day is fun and practical, with lots of exercises to involve all students replicating the real media world. Rather than being an “off-the-shelf” day, Enterprising Jounalism is tailored to your school, to suit your students, their abilities and the time you have available.

Students will learn:

  • About the media industry and how different outlets operate – the difference between news and features, interview techniques, roles within newspapers and what they do, what happens and when during a typical day, the in-house language of journalism
  • Important journalist skills – how to find a good story, research techniques and investigative skills, how to write brilliant intros, headlines and captions, the essentials of designing pages, how to balance editorial with advertising, working to deadlines
  • Teamwork and leadership skills
  • Tricks of the trade
