Editors and publishers all over the world acknowledge and trust the National Council for the Training of Journalists qualification. Editors do not have the time or budget to train. They need new journalists to hit the ground running. Our students develop contacts and find exclusive stories during their time on the diploma. These are key skills all editors want.
