The directors agreed not to renew accreditation for the full-time (44-week) and part-time (24-week) newspaper journalism courses at Nosweat Journalism Training.  As with all current students on previously accredited courses, students who have started these courses at Nosweat will continue to be supported by the NCTJ and have the opportunity to sit NCTJ exams.

The Accreditation Board, which oversees all NCTJ accreditation activities, has also been working on new projects to support NCTJ students and centres. These projects include providing tips and advice for researching courses and help with CV and cover letter writing that are now available to download from the NCTJ website.
