WHAT IS S2R?

Supporter to Reporter (S2R) is a project based learning programme that develops skills and confidence through sports reporting.

Using sports media as the motivator and context, the programme turns young people into Journalists, Producers and Coaches.

The S2R programme teaches vital workplace skills like communication, teamwork, how to meet deadlines, as well as digital media skills. Reports are created using video, audio, text and images, and are published for the world to see on the safe social network Makewaves.

S2R Medals are used to recognise and reward young peoples achievements during the S2R programme.

Through this series of online Digital Badges, young people can successfully display and transfer their new skills into the world of work.

Our legacy of creating valuable partnerships has encouraged relationships within industry alongside leading organisations such as The Premier League, The Football League Trust, Premier Rugby, The ECB and more. There are 9 S2R Medals available to earn which develop a range of journalism, collaboration and leadership skills which can be shared with employers and universities. 

To take part in S2R, schools need to sign up for a free site on Makewaves, the safe social network.

  • I found the S2R week very useful, I developed skills in film, presenting and editing which then helped me with the final task at Newcastle Falcons v Gloucester.
