John Schofield Trust

14 July, 2021

The John Schofield Trust is working hard to improve social mobility in UK broadcast newsrooms through its mentoring schemes for early career and apprentice journalists and its e-mentoring scheme for Year 12 and 13 students considering a career in journalism. The under-representation of those from disadvantaged backgrounds is a particular problem within journalism.

The John Schofield Trust believes this urgently needs to change so that the news stories that are told truly reflect our society; that young people who may never have considered journalism as a career for them can champion the diverse stories they have lived.
