Students at Fakenham Sixth Form welcomed the BBC’s director of news and current affairs earlier this month, who spoke to a group of students about topics.
Speaking to the group, Ms Unsworth said: “It’s important to the BBC that they hear from young people about their concerns, so we can reflect them in the news.”
With social media now playing a key role in news consumption, Ms Unsworth also added that she was “heartened” by the thought of young people still engaging with the news in more traditional ways.
Lianne Higgins, the head of Fakenham Sixth Form, said how it is important for young adults to “learn to speak out confidently about their views, listen to views of others and come to their own opinions”.
