Community Reporters get a HeadStart

Posted : 03/07/2015

Thanks to HeadStart funding, Safe in Tees Valley's digital leaders, (Josh, Liam & Yacouba) spent 2 full days in Trinity Catholic College in the past 2 weeks training 13 pupils aged 10-14 to become HeadStart Community Reporters; in order to collect, report, analyse and share digital stories about the challenges & successes of transition from primary to secondary school education. The bronze, silver, gold to platinum programme consisted of teaching the pupils how to use digital media, capture & edit digital stories, interview techniques, Internet safety (to name a few) as well as training them to become peer educators (platinum level) in order for them to pass these valuable new skills onto others. Safe In Tees Valley will continue to support the HeadStart project during their summer school and when the school starts the new term in September 2015.

Lorraine Nevison, Safe in Tees Valley's Participation Coordinator said "it has been fantastic to be part of such a brilliant project. The pupils gained so much from being trained by our young digital leaders. Everyone at Trinity Catholic College were welcoming & friendly and it has been a pleasure working with everyone involved".
