Exam refreshers

We offer a series of refresher sessions to help you prepare for your diploma or NQJ exams.

Exam refresher sessions are ideal for distance learners and those who would benefit from additional support ahead of exams, giving them valuable time with experienced NCTJ tutors.

Currently, all exam refreshers are taking place remotely via Zoom.

Diploma in Journalism refreshers

Ahead of national exam dates, refreshers are offered on the following diploma subjects: essential journalism, public affairs and media law.

Prior to attending, you will be sent a sample exam to complete and return to the tutor, who will mark the paper and go through areas of difficulty at the workshop. You will also be asked to submit your top five areas of concern so the tutor can work into the programme.

Group sessions will cost £70 +VAT each. One-to-one sessions cost £99 +VAT, to arrange please contact Skills Academy.

National Qualification in Journalism (NQJ) refreshers

Two-day refresher sessions for the NQJ exams are held in February, June and October each year, offering practical experience and feedback on all sections of the NQJ.

You will be given coursework and mock exams to complete in advance of attending, which will be marked with feedback. As part of the refresher, you will also complete a full mock exam day.

The tutor will also review your logbook and provide advice and guidance.

Group sessions cost £360, for those who have not pre-paid for a session as a distance learner.
