Norton College (part of The Sheffield College) is a long-established centre offering award-winning courses accredited by the industry-driven body, the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ).
Students will study multi-media reporting, media law, shorthand and public affairs. In addition there are options in video journalism for online, sport or magazine journalism.
All our courses are taught through a combination of lectures and hands-on practical experience. We have excellent contacts with editors across the region who regularly showcase students’ work in their publications.
Sheffield is also thriving city of sport and the perfect place to be a sports journalist. Sheffield College works closely with the city’s two major football teams, Wednesday and United, to create reporting opportunities for students.
Course assessment is by portfolio and exams set externally by the NCTJ.
This course leads you into multi-media journalism on newspapers, magazines or websites, press office work or public relations.
