A select number of boys and girls in Years 11-13 at Bolton School enjoyed an online careers event hosted by ITN News. The session included presentations from producers from ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5, as well as recent apprenticeship students.

The morning involved an explanation of the routes into Journalism, along with some CV and cover letter tips. During the event, the students were given a task to envisage the best way to cover a breaking news story about a helicopter crash. The session culminated with a questions and answers session regarding journalistic careers.

Teacher and Careers Coordinator Mr Paul Newbold said: 'This was a really worthwhile event and the pupils found it very useful to think about how to build up their own skills and experiences over the next few years in order to improve their chances of employability.'
