Graduate jobs news: Highbury College 'good for journalism'
Thursday, 31 July 2008
Highbury College is one of the top learning centres for those planning on taking graduate jobs in journalism, figures reveal.
Data released by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) show that the college offers one of the top ten such courses in the country.
The institution is looking to enter the top five by 2010, it states.
Peter Moutray, head of media and journalism at the college, said: "On the broadcast course we have editors coming in to run news days with the students so they are familiar with how things are run."
Former student Paul Hankey stated that the course prepares people well for starting their graduate jobs.
All the skills the course taught him were useful in his new role, Mr Hankey explained.
Last week, Angela Baron, advisor at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, claimed that graduates can boost their job prospects by learning a foreign language.
