See who runs the Burnet News Club
There are five Burnet News Club skills which are embedded across all content and activities. Not only are they hugely valuable in school, university and employment, they’re also essential for forming an accurate picture of the world in the face of misinformation, opinion bubbles and polarised debates in the media.
Quite simply, the club has been a revelation. Every week, new and interesting resources are produced and available, all of which go hand-in-hand with relevant and appropriate termly topics. These resources are accessible to all types of learners; they are bespoke, carefully-thought out and allow students to improve across a number of key skills.BNC Teacher
The Burnet News Club is run by The Economist Educational Foundation, an independent charity from The Economist newspaper.
Our mission is to tackle inequality by giving disadvantaged young people the skills to think for themselves about current affairs.
Membership in the Burnet News Club lasts for a full school year. The window to sign up for a place closes mid-July.
To sign up your school or to find out more, contact us. We’ll be excited to hear from you!
We offer benefits to MATs such as bespoke teacher training and events to bring teachers from different schools together. Burnet News Club creates meaningful connections between schools, and we can implement it in a way that supports your strategies and priorities. If you are interested to hear more, get in touch.
The Burnet News Club exists because of the community of young people, teachers and supporters who make it happen. If you would like to support the programme by donating funding or expertise then we would love to hear from you.
