This research report updates the analysis of journalists’ diversity characteristics to 2022. It can be read in conjunction with the NCTJ’s Diversity in Journalism report, published in November 2017 and 2022, and Journalists at Work, published in October 2018.
This independent research aims to assess the impact of investing in an NCTJ-accredited course and performing well in the diploma. It follows the first report, which was published in 2015.
Over 1,000 journalists contributed to the Journalists at Work 2012 survey, which provides a comprehensive demographic profile of the journalism industry, including personal characteristics and geographical employment patterns.
