Inspiring Young Working Class Males: a case study of a Primary School Outreach Project

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This project was born out of an existing Media Outreach programme working with pupils from year 8 upwards. The University has a relationship with a number of schools in the area (both primary and secondary) as lead sponsor of the Hastings Academies Trust. A lot of work had already been undertaken with the two secondary academies engaging with cohorts from year 9, 10 and 11 who had been identified as first in family students, from low participation postcodes and with the academic ability to progress to University. Widening Participation interventions included journalism days, a film summer school, soap opera workshops and television studio projects. However the six primary academies had not had the opportunity to develop a relationship with the Media Department, although they had benefitted from the Primary Outreach work which takes place in school, therefore a pilot programme was devised specifically for Year 3 (age 7/8) pupils to develop their digital and media literacy and communication skills
