NCTJ students to share views at annual forum

The NCTJ’s annual Student Council forum will take place at MSN in London on 8 February 2013.

This is the sixth annual meeting and will be attended by student representatives from each NCTJ-accredited course. Previous meetings have been highly successful at involving students in decision making and this year’s event is a further opportunity for them to communicate their views.

Students will have the opportunity to question a panel of editors about the skills and attributes needed to succeed in today’s industry. They will also hear from recent graduates about their experiences of training and employment.

Student Council members will also get the chance to talk to senior NCTJ staff about key issues and present their views and suggestions. A number of representatives will then be able to take these views to a meeting of the NCTJ board of directors in June.
