Each of the participants is paired with a mentor who is established and working in UK journalism.
One-to-one mentoring sessions are held at regular intervals over the course of the project.
Sessions offer participants valuable guidance and planning opportunities for their careers, as well as opportunities to discuss current events and developments in journalistic practice.
This contact will also widen participants’ network of contacts, further preparing them for careers in the UK.
