Big Issue Online Journalism Training Programme

In collaboration with The Big Issue we have put together a six-week online journalism programme. The training programme is aimed at people who are homeless or marginalised and the long term unemployed. Trainees taking part in this programme, with interests in either writing or photography, will build skills and improve their employability. It will also give the trainees the chance to put together a portfolio and to get their work published through Answers From Big Issue, local newspapers and this blog. So far we have run five programmes and are about to embark on expanding the training to the South West in April 2015.
