Find out how you can become an apprenticeship training provider, work closely with the NCTJ and further contribute to the work of the charity.

The NCTJ works closely with journalism trainers to ensure high standards of training and education on accredited courses and apprenticeships.

There are a number of ways you can work with us, from attending tutor forums and workshops, to becoming an apprenticeship training provider.

Become an apprenticeship training provider

The NCTJ works with a number of training providers to deliver apprenticeship training for the Level 5 Journalist apprenticeship (which delivers the Diploma in Journalism), and the Level 7 Senior Journalist apprenticeship (which delivers the NQJ).

Further information on journalism apprenticeships can be found here.

If you would like further information on becoming a training provider, please contact Lyn Jones, head of qualifications or Rachel Manby, head of awarding.

Tutor workshops

Led by the chief examiners, with support from members of the examination boards and NCTJ staff, tutor workshops are designed for anyone with responsibility for delivering the components that make up the Diploma in Journalism.

Workshops provide guidance on the programmes of study and assessments, and also provide opportunities to share ideas, seek advice and raise any concerns about the structure and content of the Diploma in Journalism.

They are open to tutors from accredited courses, as well as those who are working towards accreditation or teaching at exam centres.

Accreditation forums

Each year, the NCTJ holds accreditation forums, which are designed to give those delivering NCTJ-accredited courses an opportunity to discuss the challenges and opportunities surrounding the delivery of NCTJ qualifications and accredited courses.

Course leaders and heads of journalism will be encouraged to share ideas and issues and funding and delivery of the NCTJ syllabus. The NCTJ’s strategy and any updates will also be discussed.
