ASPIRING media stars from Bow celebrated their success at completing an accredited course run by Old Ford Housing Association's Eastside Youth Centre.

The 13-19-year-olds participated in a four-month media course, which is carried out by Bethnal Green-based charity Headliners Media.

Participants of the course were trained in various aspects of media and journalism, including research, interviewing and production skills.

Graduates proudly accepted their OCN award in 'introduction to journalism', the equivalent to GSCE grade 'C'.

The media course is part of the Eastside Youth Centre's wider programme of training courses for young people.

A range of activities are offered including dance, music tutoring and a variety of sports including football and rugby. Many young people achieve accreditations and move on into training and employment.

Youth co-ordinator Sharon Fairclough, said: "We are really pleased with the success of the media course.

"This is such a good group of young people to work with and it's great to see them get their qualification. They all deserve it.
