NCTJ Portfolio

 

I am a qualified journalist. I achieved the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) Diploma with gold-standard accreditation.

 

My NCTJ Diploma in Journalism portfolio was awarded the highest grade possible (grade A).

Georgina has a phenomenal work ethic, is enthusiastic, conscientious and, above all, a great journalistic prospect. Since joining our team, Georgina’s input has been invaluable.

Georgina is a hard-working, enthusiastic and talented young reporter who would be an asset to any newsroom. Her copy is clean, she has had excellent results in her NCTJ qualifications and she is happy to take on any story.

Georgina has been running the Schools section in the Milton Keynes Citizen and has made an excellent job of cultivating contacts and developing stories in this area.
