NO COURT REP CLASS TODAY. ATTENTION YEAR 2s AND MAs

Feb
28

As you know Medway campus is closed today so no Court Reporting class. If any of you would like to write answers to any of the questions on the current test paper feel free to email them to me for feedback.  If campus is open tomorrow and you can make it in, there are copies of the next test paper in Nicola's office on top of the filing cabinet in a blue box file marked "Sarah".  And don't forget there are two test papers - with marking guides - on the NCTJ student resources website. Let's keep fingers crossed for Friday's classes!

Amol Rajan delivers the tenth Bob Friend Sky News lecture

Feb
23

Laerke Christensen became the tenth* Centre for Journalism student to recieve the unique Bob Friend Sky News Scholarship last night, at a glittering event on the Historic Dockyard at Medway.

Sky News assistant editor Peter Diapre presented Laerke with her award, following which BBC media editor Amol Rajan delivered a brilliant lecture 'The Tortoise and the Share' - more of which next week.

In the meantime there are more pictures of last night's event over on our Facebook pages.

* And yes it is the tenth. Tim is buying me an abacus for my next birthday. Clearly I'm in denial over the number of years since our first event...

This year's Bob Friend Scholar is... Laerke Christensen

Feb
16

I have word from Millbank that white smoke has just emerged from chimney above the glass box in the Sky News studio, meaning that this year's Bob Friend scholar has been chosen.

Many congratulations to Year 2 student Laerke Christensen, who has emerged just ahead after what I'm told was an incredibly difficult decision by the final judging panel: Peter Diapre of Sky News, and Tim Luckhurst and Angela Harrison from the Centre for Journalism.

Finalists Alex Crean, Isabel Muller Eidhamar and Frazer Norwell should also be incredibly proud of their performances today in what is a very high pressure situation. They have all enhanced the centre's reputation greatly.
