English with Bucks New Uni

Creative Industries
The annual Bucks Skills Show helps young people explore careers and work out how to get there. But this year is different: instead of the usual face-to-face format, we streamed live inspirational employers into lessons to show how they use curriculum subjects in their every-day job.

This English lesson explores research and writing for news with Buckinghamshire New University.

Bucks New University is a new breed of university, focusing on degrees that are professional and practical, as well as academic. Young in outlook, but well established in the fields we specialise in, we offer high quality, professionally-driven university courses, in everything from nursing, health and social care, to cyber fraud detection, textiles and aviation.

You can read more about what we offer, including Multimedia Journalism, at www.bucks.ac.uk.

Speaker: Neil Roberts. 

Neil Roberts runs Multimedia Journalism at Buckinghamshire University, having spent 25 years as a newspaper and television journalist. 

He worked at the Liverpool Echo and News of the World, moving to BBC Sport and ITV News, before running the Premier League's global television news coverage at IMG. He's worked on major stories including the death of Princess Diana, the death of Pope John Paul II and the 2005 London Bombings.
