Making the News with Sky News

The team at Sky News take students behind the scenes to talk about some of the different jobs available in journalism in a session specifically for Gloucestershire students in Years 11–13.

Ever wondered how the news “happens”? Where do the stories come from, who decides what’s important, and how do you work out fact from fiction? As well as telling students about the different jobs available in broadcast journalism, Sky News will also show students how they find, research and tell their stories on TV, on the radio and online, making this an ideal session for media students, English Language or Literature students, or any student with an interest in journalism or marketing.

The event will take place on our YouTube channel at 11am on Wednesday 24 February – click the button below to access it. 

Sky News – Making the News

Before the session, we would like Gloucestershire students to research what “news literacy” means, and come up with some examples of how to check that what you’re reading or watching is based on facts. Students can also submit any questions to us ahead of the session below.
