Various testimonials

I passed my exams after three attempts. I thought I'd never pass. Your coaching definitely made the difference. Best investment I've made.

I would not hesitate to recommend CMP's courses to anyone prepared to put in the hard graft required to become a journalist. I chose CMP's course as the most convenient. I have never regretted that decision.

I enrolled as I had previously failed both NCTJ law exams and felt that I needed extra guidance and advice. The help given was constructive and clear on how to improve, and the assignments were marked and returned very quickly. Money well spent!

I can’t find fault with any of the course. The content covers everything. It’s flexible – you have no time restrictions. When I submitted lessons for marking, they were always sent back to me within 48 hours with brilliant advice from my tutor.

Copywriting course student Electra Nanou

I was interested in copywriting and was already acquainted with CMP’s excellence. The course helped me see the difference between creative writing and copywriting, but also how to subtly incorporate my existing writing style.

WOW! This proofreading course has opened my eyes to a whole new way of looking at literature. I am looking forward to applying my new skills to my job and looking for new opportunities. Thank you, Cleland and CMP.

The tutorial support was great. Cleland answered any questions I had, and was very encouraging. If something needed more work, he would tell me how to improve, and he made me feel as though I was accomplishing well.

The course met my expectations in every way. I sharpened my skills all the way through. Cleland was an excellent tutor who gave valuable feedback and lesson material with practical examples. The course content was very thorough.

Linda Preston

I signed up for the mentor course as I needed help with my journalism career. I've now had work published in several magazines and newspapers. One story made it to the Sun Online, the Daily Mail Online and The Times.

I enrolled on this course to improve my understanding of SEO. The course gave me knowledge of how Google works, and the tutor support I received from Justine was excellent. I would recommend this course to anyone!

I did this course as I wanted to stay at home with my baby and study at the same time. It was a great experience and I recommend it. Could the course have been improved? No, it is perfect as it is.

The course was exactly what I was looking for. It was easy to follow and I had constructive feedback on every lesson within two days max. The tutorial support was fantastic and friendly, and communication was excellent, with great feedback and quick responses.

Cleland was very responsive to my emails, every question I had was answered quickly and in full. The course covered so many different areas of editing in so many different forms.

The course has exceeded my expectations. It has provided me with the necessary tools to work as a proofreader in the most professional and effective way. The material is designed and presented in a very approachable way.

I had worked with a magazine before and realised I wanted to know more about the digital side of things. The course more than met my expectations. The tutorial support was good and the content was good, too, with plenty of detail.

I was working for a journalism website, but needed to gain the necessary certifications. I came to CMP and learned a lot from this course. I would recommend this course to anyone who is working in online media.

The notes were very detailed and covered everything I needed to know for basic proofreading, so I did not need any tutorial support. The course was well structured and I learned so much. It was worth every penny.

Great online learning institution! The course was very helpful. I learned a lot from it. Friendly learning atmosphere. The tutor was very accommodating and motivating.

This course definitely changed my life! Starting my own blog was a high moment in my career so far. It was selected by RCA to promote Beyoncé's new album! I exclusively released tracks and quotes from Beyoncé until her new album "4" was released.

It was an in-depth course, yet fairly easy to follow. It was also good to be able to work at my own pace, and I enjoyed the challenge. I found the course content varied and interesting. I would certainly recommend it!

Vasilia Nicolaou

I thoroughly enjoyed studying with CMP. It was a broad and thorough first taste of journalism for me. A great coverage of the styles and complexities which are involved in this industry. I am sure this will not be the only course I complete with CMP.

Paul Horrocks

An essential course for anyone who wants to avoid the legal pitfalls of social media. An easy to follow, common sense style. Enrol now and don’t become the defendant.
