NCTJ 'guinea pigs'

May
23

Thanks to all those who volunteered to road-test the NCTJ's new Essential Journalism exam. I'm afraid I ended up with too many names, so have used the time-honoured 'sorting hat' technique (i.e pulling names out of a coffee cup) to reduce the number of volunteers to the 15 that the NCTJ wanted.

The 15 names are below - apologies if you volunteered but are not on the list.
