Workshops held for aspiring young journalists

The Central University of Technology, Free State (CUT) will again this year present its Community Journalism Project to learners of Bloemfontein who are interested in following a career in journalism.
The Community Journalism Project is a joint venture between the CUT’s Department of Communication Sciences and Central Media Group – a multi-media company specialising in print, electronic, radio and digital platforms.
The project takes the form of an interactive workshop, lasting about two hours, where CUT third-year Journalism students share their knowledge and expertise with prospective journalism students.
High school learners with an interest in journalism, particularly community journalism, will be introduced to the many and exciting aspects of the journalism industry. Learners who are already involved in journalism, for instance the school’s newspaper, are invited to learn more about a career in journalism. The CUT students will give an overview of the journalism industry and practical hands-on tips as to how to become a good journalist. The students’ lecturer, Dr Mardi Delport, and various experts from the Central Media Group, will also form part of the panel.
The project will be presented on Wednesday, 12 October, and Thursday, 13 October.
