After nine long weeks it's hard to believe that we've almost completed the course.
Exams have taken their toll but at the same time we all passed shorthand (some at faster speeds than others), and we're now still waiting for Media Law results.
3 members on the PTC (Periodicals Training Council) board came in to talk to us about the course. Editor of the Radio Times among them, advised me to sell my story to the Indy. That would be a decent by line.
If you want to become a journalist this course definitely gives you one of the best chances. We're now all hell bent on getting jobs in the industry. Not easy but I'm feeling a whole lot more confident than I did nine weeks ago.
