Jan

A reminder to all first years, second years and MA students:

As part of your Convergent Journalism and Practical Multimedia Journalism portfolios, you are required to  post at least one discussion item on the blog on this web site each term.

Your blog posts should be an item for discussion - at least four paragraphs - about any issue of your choice. Better if it's journalism-related, but it might also be something more personal, or covering an issue you're particularly interested in.

Why you should print as well as read council agendas

Dec

What has been the impact of the coalition's welfare reforms? Kent County Council is not alone in wondering if the far-reaching changes are having unintended consequences. So it decided to examine if there were any repercussions for those affected.

It produced a 42-page report which was duly put on an agenda for a meeting of a relatively anonymous scrutiny committee. It made for interesting reading. The main finding was that welfare reforms were being linked to rising homelessness, crime and numbers using food banks - particularly children.
