NCTJ’s Journalism Diversity Fund could open the door to many

One of the criticisms of the NCTJ and the route into journalism is the cost of the course. There is a school of thought that only those who can afford the high prices reap the benefits.

Well this isn’t necessarily the case as the NCTJ owned Journalism Diversity Fund looks to receive its latest set of applications. An article on holdthefrontpage states that budding journos from diverse backgrounds can receive funding from the JDF to help them through an NCTJ course.

Applicants must have already been accepted on to a course that starts between September 2011 and August 2012 but the knowledge that such help is available would surely encourage more people to look at the NCTJ route.

The Fund has already helped 101 students and the deadline for this years applicants is April 29.

If you are interested in taking the NCTJ’s but are put off by the price then visit, contact 01799 544940 or email for more information.

    Just to mention that we do scholarships of between 50 and 100% of our course fees for anyone in hardship or on benefits who wants to do any of our NCTJ Diploma courses. With instalments, a 50% scholarship works out at around £35 a month.
