Special BBC Media and Journalism Event for Young People

27 October 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Are you part of a group working with 11-18 year olds? If so, this is your opportunity to attend a young people and media event at BBC Birmingham, hosted by BBC School Report.

As part of BBC School Report’s extended work with youth and community organisations we are inviting 11-18 year olds from the Midlands area to come into the BBC at the Mailbox in Birmingham for a special opportunity to develop their understanding of journalism and media skills.

The theme for the half-day event is ‘Real News’ and will include a workshop about news literacy – checking facts and sources, and filtering out fake news and false information – and a chance for young people to understand what makes a great news story and develop some of their own ideas and original journalism. The activities will be run by BBC producers.

The attendees will also get a chance to hear from our BBC Apprentices about what is like to get a media job and the key skills needed to succeed in the industry.

Refreshments will be provided but you will need to be able to make your own travel arrangements.

If you’d like to book a FREE place for you and 6-8 students, please complete the following and email it across to naseem.akhtar@bbc.co.uk:
