Journalism Skills Conference

The Journalism Skills Conference and Awards for Excellence gala dinner and ceremony returns for 2018, taking place on Thursday, 29 and Friday, 30 November. 

The two-day conference will be hosted in Essex by one of the longest-standing journalism training centres in the UK – Harlow College. 

Delegates and guests will also visit the NCTJ’s headquarters for an evening reception before presentation of the 2018 Awards for Excellence at nearby Quendon Hall.

We will be looking at the skills and techniques needed to bring to life data-driven stories, how to stay strong and keep safe as a journalist, the future of magazine journalism as well as the latest tips and tricks to verify information and images from social media in the fight against fake news.

We will explore how some of the biggest stories of 2018 were sourced and revealed to the public.

There will be specialist sessions to consider the latest developments in journalism and to share practice, teaching, learning and skills.

We are being joined by a host of speakers who are making waves in the industry and are working at the heart of the revolution in journalism skills. They include:
