Last chance to join our free community reporters’ course

Community reporters graduating after successfully completing a course in New Wortley.

Want to help tell the story of your community? Time is running out if you’d like to join our free community reporters’ training course.

The friendly and informal course runs over SIX sessions and offers a fun introduction to writing articles, taking photos, making videos and basic podcasting – as well as offering wider help and guidance on everything you need to know to be a community reporter. We can even help with spelling and grammar!

Our free course is aimed at beginners and runs over SIX, two-hour sessions. There will be lots of tea, coffee, cake and biscuits – and it looks great on your CV as you will learn transferable skills you can take into employment or studying.

It’s running in our new community newsroom, based at Bramley Lawn Social Centre, on Thursday evening (17 March 2022), from 7pm.
