BISB Partners with Nord Anglia Education to Offer Young Journalists Academy

January 22, 2015

Nord Anglia Education has partnered with the Young Journalists’ Academy in the UK to deliver a special program designed to inspire and train the young reporters in our schools around the world. A BISB Year 9 student shares more information on this program.

Only seventeen students across the Nord Anglia family of schools were selected to join the Global Classroom Young Journalists’ Academy and will experience the world of journalism first hand as they complete assignments based on current affairs with advice from experienced journalists.
BISB student Shumraze Fawad in Year 9 is the only BISB student to have been selected.
“I’m really excited for the programme,” said Shumraze, “I’ve always had a passion for journalism that’s been driven by my interest in debate, global politics and writing.
“Being selected for the programme is a huge accomplishment for me because now I can broaden my outlook whilst being mentored by different journalists including Mick Hume and Shiv Malik. Journalism itself is something quite liberating, and I feel that it is important to be able to express ideas and thoughts whilst being professional and not bias.”
There are also a series of masterclasses, each hosted by a different journalist and offering tips and advice on different aspects of modern reporting. Our students are challenged to demonstrate their new skills in a short activity which will be judged by the experts.
The first masterclass, The ABC of Good Journalism, is hosted by Mick Hume, writer for The Sun and The Times and author of There is No Such Thing as Free Press. Good writing is at the heart of good journalism and Mick shares his three key rules to help our students craft great articles.
Masterclass two will see Dr Tiffany Jenkins, writer of a weekly column in The Scotsman, discussing opinion pieces, while Shiv Malik from The Guardian, will advise how to get the best out of an interview in the third masterclass. A special masterclass hosted by Anne Jolis of The
Spectator will teach students about reporting in a conflict zone.
