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!”
