Are any of your students interested in the media? Now is their chance to experience it first-hand!
I recently wrote to you about the Young Journalists' Academy (YJA) (previously called the spiked Journalism Summer School).
I hope that you will encourage your students to apply to the 2009 YJA summer school, which is completely free of charge and takes place in Canary Wharf on 1 - 8 August. It's a popular programme and places are limited - so students are advised to apply ASAP. The final deadline is Monday 15 June.
The programme is open to 16- to 18-year-old London state school pupils. It is ideal for any student who is interested in a career in the media. The aim of the summer school is to offer a route into the competitive field of journalism to young people.
For more information about the programme or to download our brochure, please visit www.yja.org.uk. An application form can also be found on this website - it can be filled out online or printed out and submitted by post. As part of the application, students are required to submit a short statement of interest and a short piece of writing.
Successful candidates will get a unique chance to meet some of Britain's most renowned journalists, to participate in media training workshops and to visit the headquarters of high profile media institutions.
If you or your students have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch - my contact details are below. Kind regards,
Nathalie Rothschild Co-ordinator, YJA Journalism Education Ltd Signet House 49 - 51 Farringdon Road London EC1M 3JP
