Also, please see the email below from my colleague Angie who is producing this programme. We would love to get a few short videos in from your students regarding any questions they would like answered by our experts around the results, next steps etc. Angie has all the relevant info in her email below and in the attached docs.

Hi,

It’s Angeline from BBC NI.

We have a live programmes coming from Broadcasting House in Belfast on August 19th about next options after pupils’ get their GCSE results – we’ll be looking at everything from A Levels to Apprenticeships. The broadcast goes live at 2 pm and we are really keen on getting young people to record a video question to be played out during the programme, it can easily be done on their mobile phone.

We did the same thing for A Levels last week and you can take a look on iPlayer here.

How to

Please remember to read the guidance beforehand as it will help to take the best possible film for the broadcast. Could I ask you not to use your surname in introductions as it may breach the editorial guidance we have around identifying young people (Starting it with something like “Hi, I’m Angie from …” etc.)

Please feel free to send us a few takes via WeTransfer.com to my email ([email protected]). If you’re having difficulties doing this, please feel free to Whatsapp it to me via +447515897907 and if possible by Tuesday morning.

We can’t guarantee we’ll be able to play all the videos out on the day due to timing issues, but we will aim to get you a response from our panel if this is the case.

I’ve also attached a permission slip for a parent or guardian to sign – you can call me anytime if there are any issues.
