City of Wolverhampton College honoured

A journalism course run by City of Wolverhampton College has been announced as one of the most successful in the country.

The college was awarded the best performing National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) Academic Year FE course during a gala dinner at Belfast City Hall.

It was among five top performing NCTJ accredited centres across the country presented with awards for the highest percentage of students achieving C grade passes or better in all seven NCTJ exams, including 100wpm shorthand.

Programme tutor Sue Green, who was presented with the award by Kim Fletcher, chairman of the NCTJ, said: “It’s brilliant.

“We always work to extremely high standards to achieve the excellent results demanded by the professional awarding body and the newspaper industry.”

Highbury College topped the table for FE fast-track courses.

Joanne Butcher, NCTJ chief executive, said: “All accredited course providers should be congratulated on achieving the high standards the industry looks for.”
