Fancy a reporting trip to this year's #March4Women?

Looking for something exciting to do on Sunday 3rd of March? Men, women, everybody's welcome. I am planning to attend and cover it for a couple of Mexican outlets and if you're still looking for portfolio stories this could be a cool thing to go do! The March starts at 12pm and then it culminates in an hour long event in Central Hall Westminster that you need to buy a 5 pound ticket for. Covering protests, demonstrations and marches is an important part of journalist's work. We could do a little unofficial field trip and train up from Medway together. Interested? I'm not hard to find =)

BBC Radio Kent is looking for a Kent grammar educated student

BBC Radio Kent is looking for a Kent grammar educated student who passed the 11+, for a BBC project called Crossing divides.
You need to be a good talker and have some things to say.
The format is to sit down and recording and film two students who don’t know each other to talk about the issue of Grammar school education v Comprehensive education. The format would be similar to the R4s The Listening Project i.e. it’s very conversational with little interjection from a BBC journalist.
