Hi there! I have been planning to get an an NCTJ qualification. Can someone please tell me how useful is it? Will it help me get into a newspaper company? Will it provide me with the knowledge needed to be a better journalist? I have also been looking at Sheffield College for a fast track course in Newspaper journalism, a 17-week course, which will prepare the student for the NCTJ exam. Would someone know if it is a good college and offers quality education? Eagerly looking forward to opinions that will help me make my decision.
