Create Your Future
BDC students produce an issue of the Barking & Dagenham Post – and win paid internships
Students at Barking & Dagenham College celebrated the launch of their issue of the Barking and Dagenham Post today. As part of the Create Your Future project, the students took over the newsroom and wrote and edited the 4 June 2014 issue of the Post.
Nine students won the opportunity as part of the Create Your Future competition run in association with Archant, a top 5 regional news publisher. The students were asked to think of ways in which they could use Archant’s many channels to promote the College to 16-18 year olds.
Two students, Emilie Rix and Michael Morar were awarded ten-week paid internships at Archant over the summer holidays. In addition, Rheanna Stiles was given the opportunity to work as a columnist.
