STAYING SAFE DURING COVID-19
PressPad is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and the advice that is being issued by the Government and the NHS. We are aware that many news organisations are cancelling work experience, internships and even pausing hiring, which will affect those about to enter the industry.
For young journalists, we know you must be feeling anxious about this and we want you to know we are still here for you. If you need any support or help, please don’t hesitate to email us and we will do our best to lend a hand in any way we can.
In the meantime, we’ve put together an exciting programme of online masterclasses, speed mentoring, CV & pitch clinics and more. You can find our calendar of upcoming events underneath or by following the hashtag #PressPadRemote.
Stay safe and stay in touch,
Keep en eye out for our amazing online speed mentoring events happening less regularly (but still amazing!)
Want to help out?
We have other ideas in the works, and we are also open to any ideas you might have. If you are one of our brilliant hosts or a journalist who is interested in helping out, please sign up underneath to deliver a masterclass, do a Q&A session and more.
PressPad is an award-winning social enterprise that is fighting to lower the financial barrier of entry into journalism.
We link young people with work experience in London with experienced journalists who can offer a spare room plus great advice.
We also add them to our intern networks so they can learn from each other.
It’s mentoring, networking and accommodation all rolled into one.
