The Student Views’ EMIF ‘Train-the-Trainer’ programme aims to train 100 teachers to become the next ‘Media Literacy Champions’.

It will bring together media literacy experts from The Student View, investigative journalists from Bellingcat, education specialists from the PSHE Association, and data analysts from Demos, Britain’s leading cross-party think-tank.

The programme will equip secondary school teachers across the UK to deliver workshops to students, coach them as new reporters, and improve their critical thinking and media literacy skills. 

Our goal is to close the Media Literacy Gap: by targeting our interventions in low-income communities where children have weak or no media literacy skills; Diversify Journalism and revitalise ‘Local News Deserts’: by creating pop-up newsrooms where young people become journalists, reporting on stories that matter to them and their community.
