National publicity for more education clients this month

This month’s national education magazine Teach Secondary features articles from KLC promoting our school clients.

A three-page feature in the magazine – distributed to every school in the country – looking at the debate between a two or three-year Key Stage 3 in schools includes a comment piece from KLC client BMAT.

The multi-academy trust, with schools in Essex and London, runs a unique curriculum which sees students in Year 9 achieving GCSEs. The comment, written by our journalist on behalf of the CEO, provides wonderful publicity for our client.

KLC news magazines keep parents in touch with client schools

Each term, we produce news magazines to keep parents up-to-date with what is happening in their child’s school. Individual schools and multi-academy trusts love being able to show their parents all of the wonderful things being achieved within their schools and by their pupils. Our magazines are a great way of doing that.

Our journalist, designer and printer work together to take the whole operation out of the hands of our clients, liaising at the beginning and at the end to ensure a smooth operation with appropriate, lively, positive content.

These are just some of the most recent news magazines we have produced, for Trinity Primary Academy, in Wood Green, London; The Sigma Trust, in north Essex; the BMAT multi-academy trust, in Essex and east London; and Nightingale Academy, in Edmonton, London.

KLC is ten! Celebrating a decade in business

Having received the bombshell news of impending redundancy in January 2009, journalist Kelly Clark vowed to take her extensive skills to the masses.

Determined this would not be the end of her story, the writer began drafting out a whole new chapter.

Kelly Louise Clark, the PR and writing machine, was born the very next month. Ten years on, the company director is thrilled her roles as daily and weekly newspaper reporter and editor and magazine writer gave her the foundation she needed to offer a wide range of services to her clients.

Today, she is thrilled to be working with many of those clients who came on board at the very beginning and proud to be celebrating ten years in business within her 23-year journalism career.

She said: “Ten years, wow!

“I wanted to take the opportunity to take stock of the last ten years and, most importantly, to thank those of you who have been a part of that story.

“So, thank you, thank you. For keeping a roof over my family’s head, for giving me such a richly varied working life and for putting your faith in me to do a good job for you. And thank you to those partners who I rely on to help me to serve my clients well and to offer a smooth and seamless service.

“Here’s to the next ten years together!” 

Kelly’s last full-time role was as deputy editor of five mid Essex weekly newspaper titles with Newsquest. Before that, she had been a reporter and news editor for large south Essex daily newspaper, the Echo, cutting her teeth as a 17-year-old trainee on the lively patch of Basildon. Other roles during her employed career included editor of the Met Police internal newspaper, The Job; news editor of the broadsheet weekly newspaper, the Surrey Mirror; and features writer for TVTimes magazine.
