Broadcast Journalism

This double module covers the additional skills required to operate effectively as a broadcast journalist in television and radio.

Trainees will learn how to research, write and produce high-quality reports for radio and television. It will also instil a degree of familiarity with the technology, techniques, language and regulation of broadcast journalism and teach some practical skills. It should reflect the best current practice in broadcast newsrooms in the UK.

There are four assessments for this module: two practical, timed exams for TV news and radio news; a one-hour broadcast regulation exam; and a coursework element which includes producing a TV news package and a radio news package.

This option is not available on the NCTJ's distance learning course.
