Stop the press! Disability Journalism Programme goes behind the scenes on media day

Pupils on the Community Foundation's Disability Journalism Programme got an insight into the world of rugby media with a behind-the-scenes look at Bristol Rugby's midweek press conference.

The programme, which forms part of the award-winning Spectrum Project, runs on a five-workshop structure, based around a Bristol Sport match day experience and involving leading players from each club.

As well as input from the on-field stars, the programme is further enhanced by the Bristol Sport media department, who lend their skills and share their experiences of the media industry. 

Pat Lam meets the Disability Journalism pupils at Bristol Rugby's Cribbs Causeway training ground.

"This was an incredible experience for our pupils, who were absolutely thrilled to meet Pat Lam and his coaching team, as well as some of the players who came over to speak to them after training," said programme manager, Kris Tavender.

"We're privileged to work so closely with Bristol Rugby and cannot thank the staff and players enough for their warm welcome and ongoing support of the programme.

"It is so inspiring to work in partnership with Bristol Rugby and we look forward to continuing our partnership to enhance the lives and education of the pupils on the Disability Journalism Programme."
