Fast Track Success

Over the last two years, 87 per cent of our Fast Track students have achieved their National Council for the Training of Journalists Diploma in Journalism, 51 per cent with that elusive but much sought after Gold Standard.

And that is in just 16 weeks – the life of the course.

“These were easily the best set of portfolios produced on any of the NCTJ courses I have seen.  I found the standard high in every respect.”

Small is beautiful

We have small classes of around 20 or fewer, so every student is given individual attention.

“I loved the fact it was a small course as we all got a very good amount of attention and I liked the fact all the lecturers knew who we were. I never felt too intimidated to ask for help.”
