Sixth formers have produced a supplement set to be printed in a regional daily on Christmas Eve.
The Argus, Brighton, will print the ‘Youth In Action’ supplement today, featuring pieces by students at Brighton, Hove & Sussex Sixth Form College.
Students sourced and wrote stories as part of their NCTJ Foundation course, provided as part of the college’s enrichment programme by the Brighton Journalist Works training centre.
It is the second year Brighton Journalist Works has offered the course at BHASVIC after a successful pilot scheme.
Tutor Caroline Sutton said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the students to be published in a newspaper for the first time.
“The students have produced some cracking stories. I’m really proud of them.”
Argus editor Mike Gilson said: “The Argus has always supported young aspiring journalists throughout its history and we have a great track record in employing young people who made their debuts in our Youth in Action section.
“We are delighted to keep that tradition going.”
BJW managing director Paula O’Shea said: “Seeing your name on a news story is a great Christmas present for these aspiring journalists.
“NCTJ foundation is a great course for sixth formers considering a career in journalism, as it gives them a taste of what they need in the future.”
