Journalism Skills Conference

The two-day Journalism Skills Conference is the NCTJ's flagship event, which brings together educators and employers from across the UK to discuss the latest developments in the industry, and journalism education and training. 

This year's conference will take place on Thursday, 28 and Friday, 29 November at the University of Sunderland.

We will be joined by a host of speakers working at the heart of the revolution in journalism skills. The importance of resilience and understanding personal safety will be discussed, as well as the future of sport reporting in a digital age.

We will also learn about the latest video skills and explore using drone footage in journalism.

Job destinations of NCTJ graduates will also be examined, and attendees will gain insight on the Community News Project and the impact the new community reporters are having on their communities and newsrooms.

The prestigious Awards for Excellence gala dinner and ceremony, which recognises the NCTJ’s top courses and celebrates the best new journalistic talent, will take place at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light on the evening of 28 November.
