A new journalism qualification which was launched at colleges and universities in September is now on offer by a training company as a distance learning course.
CTJT is offering students the chance to study for the National Council for the Training of Journalists’ Diploma in Journalism as an e-course.
The organisation is offering all 11 modules to students in the UK and beyond in its newspaper, magazine and sports journalism courses.
Director Cleland Thom said: “We’re excited to be offering the new qualification. It will open up careers in journalism to people who are excluded because of location and cost, or who want to change careers but cannot afford to give up their jobs to study.”
