Journalism students bolster links with national press

Journalism students at Glasgow Clyde College have launched a brand new student platform on the  Daily Record website.

The Student Record, run exclusively by Practical Journalism Students at Cardonald campus, has had incredible feedback since its launch in November.

Already a number of students have had their work published in the print edition of the newspaper with some stories making the main news feed of the website and others clocking up more than 4,000 shares online.

Editor of the Student Record, second year Glasgow Clyde student Conor Cartwright said: “It is news and features content about students, for students, by students and is a great way of giving a voice to stories which might not normally make their way onto the Daily Record website. “We’ve already had stories on the top of the website’s news feed, in the print edition and some have even had over a thousand shares online.“It’s a fantastic opportunity for the students here to develop their skills and make a name for themselves in the industry.”

The project is an opportunity for the students to make strong links with the industry they hope to work in and to build up a portfolio of published work.

Steve Martin, Group Head of Content at the Daily Record and Sunday Mail, said: "It is a genuine privilege working with the students and I have been incredibly impressed by both the quality of their work and their enthusiasm.”

Meanwhile, The Student Record is building a strong partnership between Glasgow Clyde College and Media Scotland.

The second year Journalism students have launched their own Twitter and Facebook pages and will be running multi-media features including video clips of best dressed students across Scotland.

A strong team of first years have helped the core team by producing breaking news stories and features – and hope to carry the project on to the next academic year.
