TOP NCTJ EXAM RESULTS
More students qualify with Brighton Journalist Works
We are small and beautiful. We have small classes of around 20 or less, so every student gets individual attention.
We do not make claim to "processing" vast numbers of students through the NCTJ exams.
Of our September 2012 cohort, all 20 of our students passed their 80 words per minute shorthand exam and 16 of those 20 also passed the 100 words per minute exam. Every student achieved A-C (NCTJ gold standard) in their law and court reporting exams. Some 16 out of 20 got A-C grades in production journalism while 15 out of 20 got A-C grades in their reporting exams.
Of our April 2012 cohort, 10 of the 12 students in the group achieved NCTJ gold standard in all their exams. Eleven students from the group passed shorthand at 100 wpm or faster. And every student passed shorthand at 80wpm.
And that’s all in just 14 weeks – the life of the course.
Our results over the past few years make us one of the top four NCTJ centres in the country.
Back in January 2012, every student at Journalist Works achieved the gold standard in Essential Media Law and Production Journalism. That means we are the best NCTJ centre in the country at teaching Production Journalism. We are also brilliant at teaching the Business of Magazines module and all the other modules too.
I loved the fact it was a small course as we all got a very good amount of attention and liked the fact all the lecturers knew who we were. I never felt too intimidated to ask for help.
This is one of the best NCTJ courses in the country.
