You will begin by learning how to write scripts for multimedia, including match reports and sports features.

You will learn interview techniques in the studio and on location, and see first-hand how a sports journalist works whilst visiting key venues in Nottingham.

You will gain a good understanding of how to construct a multimedia sports story, be able to demonstrate the practical skills relevant to sports journalism, and be able to work effectively as part of a news team.

Once the work behind the scenes is complete, you will then gain the experience of being a television presenter in a studio and on location.

Scriptwriting for bulletins and multi-camera presenting will be taught.
