The conference will take place in Portsmouth  from Thursday, 24 to Friday, 25 November 2016.

Collaborating. This year the NCTJ is teaming up with Highbury College and the University of Portsmouth, taking the conference to the home of two of the NCTJ’s best performing centres. Seminars will be co-hosted by the t wo centres, with the first day at Highbury College and the second day at the University of Portsmouth.

Debating. The conference is a forum for debating the competing priorities in journalism training. Highlights this year include a discussion on ethics in the media, digital reporting from inside court, and digital data and mobile journalism masterclasses. Not to be missed is the debate about how the accreditation standard should evolve to reflect the changes made to the structure and content in the Diploma in Journalism.

Networking. The conference is a must for anyone interested in quality journalism training. It provides a vital link between journalism’s education, training and industry sectors. This is an unmissable opportunity to discover the latest developments in training and working practices, bringing together the movers and shakers across all sectors of the industry.

Celebrating. The conference also offers a chance to celebrate the achievements of those involved in journalism education and training. The NCTJ Awards for Excellence promise to be bigger and better than ever following the record-breaking number of entries last year. The top-performing apprentices, students, trainees and accredited course providers will be recognised at an awards ceremony and gala dinner on the evening of 24 November at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport.
