The BBC visited De Lisle on Friday 2 December, bringing their national “Share Your Story” roadshow tour to Year 8, 9 and 10 throughout the morning.
A panel discussion took place based around storytelling and careers. This was made up of Richard, a freelance filmmaker originally from Shepshed, and Zahrah, a scriptwriter and researcher at the BBC, and was led by Luke Franks. Luke is a TV presenter and content creator, who has worked for ITV, BBC Radio 1 & Sky. Luke discussed career journeys, overcoming personal and professional challenges, and identifying transferable skills for the wider world of work.
During the panels, the audience was able to ask questions using a rugby ball with a built-in microphone! Questions ranged from asking the panellists about their work, career journeys and advice for careers in the media. Finally, the BBC Bitesize website was discussed – including talking about the BBC Bitesize Careers pages, which include lots of useful information, resources, and videos.
We are very grateful to Luke, Richard and Zahrah for their time, as well as to Ben and the BBC Bitesize technical team who set up the event and made sure it ran smoothly.
