About CoJo School

The School of Community Journalism (aka CoJo School) was founded by Social Street CIC, a leading independent publisher in London, to bring new journalism teachings to the world. We saw that traditional journalism educators were not training journalists in the skills needed for the future of journalism. CoJo School is a platform that provides practical training in the ethics, strategies and applications of modern journalism that are now needed to thrive in the media industry under one roof.

We partner with leaders in the industry to bring the newest ideas in media to journalists, newsrooms and educators around the world including AI, data journalism, solutions journalism, WEB3, social networks and optimisation.

CoJo School was founded by award-winning Social Street CIC, a leading independent publisher in London that publishes five titles, four online and one in print. Social Streets CIC was incubated at Cambridge Social Ventures in 2016 to develop a new model of local journalism that would increase participation in the community and be financially sustainable even in areas of deprivation.

Socials Streets CIC is a female-led social enterprise started by Tabitha Stapely, a former editor and digital director at Hearst Digital. Stapely has been recognised as an East London Innovator and NatWest Wise Woman.
