On Friday the 23rd of January Liskeard School & Community College Sixth Form had the pleasure of meeting Jason Beattie, who is the political editor for The Mirror newspaper. He spoke to Years 12 and 13 students about his role at the paper and experiences, and about current political affairs.

Jason has been the Political Editor of the Daily Mirror since 2010 and has covered three general elections and has written for the Scotsman and Evening Standard. Sixth Form teacher Helen Snowling said “We are very lucky to have had a visit from someone so experienced in the world of politics and journalism. The students really engaged with the session and, staff included, were fascinated by Jason’s story and career journey.”

His speech was inspiring to staff and particularly students on the cusp of furthering their education. Not only did Jason create an intelligent political debate amongst everyone; he showed that the ability to succeed lays within determination and proved this by bringing along a series of rejection letters that he had received whilst trying to begin his own career.

It was an absolutely inspirational, exciting experience and the school would like to thank Ms Snowling on behalf of all of the Sixth Form students for organising the event that certainly enthused everyone, and allowed everyone to have an insight into the political election that many are now eligible to vote for this year.
