School Reporters show off initiative


Steph McGovern from BBC Breakfast talked to School Reporters in Middlesbrough as they presented their package on business enterprises in their school.

Bridy and Monique introduced their package which looked at how their school, Oakfields Community College is incorporating enterprise initiatives for its students. Showing students' various initiatives - including bake sales, recycling materials and creating mobile phone apps, the students hope to increase their employability and skills for the future.

Steph also speaks to their head teacher to discuss how these initiatives are improving prospects for young people. Joining forces with students from Macmillan Academy, the School Reporters also discuss what they have learnt from participating in School Report.

School Report is an annual BBC project which helps young people make their own news reports for a real audience.
