The BBC 2012 Community Reporters scheme

At the end of February 2012 an exciting new training scheme will launch at BBC MediaCityUK and if you are over 18 with a great knowledge of your community, an interest in storytelling and a passion for journalism we want you to be involved!

The BBC 2012 Community Reporters scheme is giving budding reporters the chance to receive training in all aspects of journalism and then work with journalists and programme makers to develop, pitch and produce radio and television content for potential broadcast on BBC North West News, BBC Radio Manchester  and also working with teams in 5Live News and 5Live Sport.

Good luck!
