The Guardian Academy

Anne-Sophie and I spent two days last week at the Guardian Academy – a two day training course at the Guardian’s offices. A highlight was being invited to watch the editor’s morning conference. It's a meeting where editors and journalists discuss the stories for the day, and set the paper’s tone.

A highlight was David Conn talking about his 20+ years covering the Hillsborough disaster. I recommend reading his excellent article: Hillsborough disaster: deadly mistakes and lies that lasted decades.
