NCTJ training initiative for Newport businesses
BUSINESSES are being offered the chance to boost their skills thanks to introductory workshops delivered by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ).
The nationwide training body, which is based in Newport, is to run two special workshops for members of the Newport Business Association (NBA) on Friday July 13. Each workshop will run for two hours and be held at the NCTJ offices in Station Road.
The morning workshop will provide an introduction to press and PR skills while the afternoon will provide an introduction to writing for the web. Both are designed to help organisations promote themselves more effectively and to expand and develop their business. They will be delivered by a highly experienced former newspaper editor, broadcaster and commentator.
NBA founder Jeremy Rose said: “This is just what companies need. Businesses need an edge to get their products or services noticed, and understanding what, when and how media companies need the information, to get the right publicity, can make the difference of being noticed, or not, by media editors.”
Emma Hart, NCTJ marketing and communications manager, added: “We are delighted to be able to use our expertise and experience to help businesses in this way.”
