All the news courses we run are accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists.
We are currently working with the NCTJ towards accrediting our new magazine course.
The NCTJ describes itself as “the industry’s charity that delivers the premier training scheme for journalists in the UK.
“We provide a world-class education and training system that develops current and future journalists for the demands of a fast-changing multimedia industry.”
In other words, if your course has the NCTJ seal of approval, as have all the courses at Brighton Journalist Works, you can be sure you are getting the best training possible.
And when you are ready to start hunting down your first job, the NCTJ qualification is what editors and other employers want to see.
The NCTJ website says: “The NCTJ Diploma in Journalism is the qualification that editors look for when recruiting a trainee journalist.
“The course will equip you with the knowledge and skills for professional entry-level journalism.
“The qualification has four underpinning values:
- To focus on the vital skills of finding and telling stories accurately and to deadline
- To reflect that most journalists work in a multimedia environment and that digital and
- Traditional skills should be fully integrated and embedded in training and assessments
- To ensure the core essential skills are covered and assessed to a national standard but with flexibility to specialise.”
