Media literacy

Who could be better placed to explain our impact than the young graduates of our programme themselves?

We put two questions to an entire class after the first session of our programme. We wanted to hear for ourselves whether or not they felt we had made a positive difference.

Here is what they told us

92% would recommend the workshops to their friends and family

71% admitted they didn’t know what mis/dis/mal information was before the workshop

After the workshop, their knowledge of these terms increased by up to 15%.

“I have learnt that the news is very important to those who want to learn something new and I have also learnt some amazing facts on fake and trusted news stories. This was very worth it to learn!” TSV Reporter from Coombe Wood School

“I'm passionate about media literacy and I cannot speak highly enough about The Student View. They do a brilliant job of teaching students about the perils of fake news and how to sift fact from fiction in an increasingly partisan age - a task that is vital today. Their enthusiasm is infectious. I can't wait to work with them again.”

Tony Gallagher, Deputy Editor, The Times

“The students were thrilled – said it was so fun to delve into a career based session rather than “just English”. I love showing them where English and general interest in the world and events can take you. This was perfect for that.”

Head of English at Woodcote High School, Harriet Cox
