The most important feature of NCTJ qualifications is employability – they open the doors to a whole range of careers in the media sector.
If you are looking for a journalism course, making sure you choose one that is NCTJ-accredited will put you a cut above the rest and give you the best chance of securing a job in journalism.
Our research shows that 81 per cent of qualified journalists in the UK hold an NCTJ qualification.
The Diploma in Journalism qualification shows you have the knowledge, skills and aptitude to succeed in the newsroom. In fact, some editors may not even consider an applicant if they haven’t achieved the Diploma in Journalism, so why close off those opportunities?
