What we do

They are free to write about whatever they are interested in, providing they stay away from anything that could cause offence, or anything with a police presence attached to it. During the scheme, students are offered various press events, for which they can compete. If students are doing DofE, they can use The Young Reporter Scheme as their skillset. We can sign off Bronze and Silver as standard, but need permission from their assessor to sign off Gold.

At the end of the scheme there is a competition, where students submit their three chosen articles to be judged against other students in their age group. There is an Awards Ceremony at the end of June, where the winners are then publicly announced for that year. The two Top Reporters of each year group also go on to become the faces of the scheme for the following year. Whether they win a prize at the end or not, this scheme is highly valuable and a great addition to UCAS applications or to put on a CV.
