Lyndon School students go behind the scenes with the BBC

Students from Lyndon School took part in a workshop about careers in the media with the BBC Output Ops team as part of the BBC Young Reporter scheme which provides opportunities for 11-18 year olds to tell their stories, gain media and journalism skills and access careers advice.

The students learnt about some of the behind-the-scenes jobs that help get journalists broadcast on-air.  From researchers to archivists and engineers, all the different career paths that make up working in broadcast media were highlighted.

Mr Abid Butt, Principal said:

“I am grateful to the team from the BBC for taking the time to speak to Lyndon students about their work.  I know they found it really interesting to hear about what happens behind the scenes in the newsroom and I know it has given some of them food for thought about their future careers!”
