I would not hesitate to recommend CMP’s courses to anyone prepared to put in the hard graft required to become a successful journalist.
Having decided to pursue my journalistic ambitions, and being unable to get to a National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) approved college, I chose CMP ‘s online distance learning course as the most convenient for my circumstances.
I have never regretted that decision.
The modular format of the magazine course means you can tackle exercises at your own pace while being confident of a thorough grounding in core skills.
The tutor’s dedicated supervision is a constant help and encouragement and exercises are always marked and returned promptly with positive, constructive comments.
The resulting improvements to my writing skills have been very useful in securing work on my local newspaper, the Eastern Daily Press.
