“Brilliant. It fulfilled my two aims: 1. Get material for lessons & 2. Broaden and deepen my knowledge of e-safety stuff. Content was bang on. Interesting to me but also potentially interesting to students. Case studies were clearly very well researched and relevant to the point being made. Format was superb. The slides had consistent layout which helped with reading them. Tutor was engaging and the tone was light throughout despite the subject being sometimes quite heavy. Absolutely would recommend this. Tell people this is better than CEOP and in half the time. I’ll back you up! –Kierhan Holt, Tiffin School. Attended ‘Online Media Law for Youth Professionals and Teachers’
“Holly led a fantastic two hour session that engaged our participants, using case studies and exercises that helped the group to understand media law - including the implications of the new GDPR regulations - and to anticipate some of the issues that might arise in their own news investigations and reporting. Her session was lively, interesting and interactive, and one of the most popular of our 11 training sessions - in both attendance and evaluation. We are already exploring funding options for a project to bring Holly back to Portsmouth to work with our writers and local residents in the future. I highly recommend Holly as a trainer and an expert in media law. Her training covered an astounding array of areas in just two hours, including ethics and legal issues during news investigations, avoiding libel and legal issues in writing up your story, and the new legal and ethical challenges posed by social media. She also followed up with the group after her session, providing links to her presentation and a wide range of resources on media law and ethics, and has supported them with any follow-up questions as they continue through the course” - Sarah Chervton, Editor in chief: Star and Crescent News.
