NCTJ 'guinea pigs'

May
23

Thanks to all those who volunteered to road-test the NCTJ's new Essential Journalism exam. I'm afraid I ended up with too many names, so have used the time-honoured 'sorting hat' technique (i.e pulling names out of a coffee cup) to reduce the number of volunteers to the 15 that the NCTJ wanted.

The 15 names are below - apologies if you volunteered but are not on the list.

Be a Guinea Pig - and win a free NCTJ exam

May
09

We're looking for some student volunteers to 'test drive' a new format of electronic exams for the NCTJ.

There's no preparation required. You'll just need to spare us 2 hours 30 minutes of your time in our newsroom on a date to be confirmed in the next couple of weeks. You'll sit an on-screen exam, under exam conditions, which is similar in style to the current NCTJ News Reporting exam - but it's all done in a web-based 'exam portal'.

What's in it for you? The NCTJ will fund a free 'real' exam (of your choice) for you later on.

Sensational NCTJ court reporting results

Apr
21

Congratulations to the many CfJ students who passed their NCTJ court reporting exam. We had an 82 per cent pass rate in the centre. Great work everyone, and thanks to our brilliant tutor Sarah Fuller.

Particularly impressive performances came from MA students Louisa Britton (with a whopping 91 per cent) and Kishan Koria (with a fractionally-less-whopping 90 per cent), and from BA student Andy Robinson (with a mighty 86 per cent).

Others to bag an A grade were: Adele Couchman, Lauren Harris, Natalie Tipping, Duarte Dias and Olivia Eden-Brown.
